Welcome to the Intel® Academic Community & EAPF Parallelism Lightning Rounds at SIGCSE 2012.
At SIGCSE 2012, we are looking to ignite attendees on the wide range of teaching content, tools, games and examples that can be used in the class room to introduce parallel concepts into computer science and computational sciences at many levels.
As part of my focus on software performance, I also support and consult on implementing scalable parallelism in applications. There are many reasons to implement parallelism as well as many methods for doing it - but this blog is not about either of those things. This blog is about the performance advantages of one particular way of implementing parallelism - and, luckily, that way is supported by several models available.
Open Parallel is a research and development company that focuses on parallel programming and multicore development. We are a bunch of highly skilled geeks from various backgrounds that work together on problems in parallel programming and software development for multicore and manycore platforms.

One of the strengths of Intel is that it hires some of the most incredibly smart and interesting people in the world. One of the best part of my job is that I get to talk with them on my Teach Parallel show.

How familiar are you with design patterns? Are you using patterns in releavant courses? If you cannot answer both questions in the affirmative you're not where you should be, according to Tim Mattson, Principal Engineer at Intel Research.
