Congratulations to the Data Structures Microgrant Recipients! Their materials are currently under production but will be shared on the Educational Exchange as soon as they're available.
|Multithreaded Data Structures for Minimal Locking Exploration of Search Spaces - USD $5000 Microgrant|
Dr. Dale Parson, Kutztown University of PA
Dr. Parson plans to integrate material from his Algorithms and Data Structures for Multiprocessing course into a special topics course in Multiprocessing and subsequent related courses. He will expand the material to C++0X and generalize the minimal-locking search algorithm. Materials from his courses will be published for reuse on the Academic Educational Exchange.
|A Structure A Month Keeps Parallelism Alive - USD $ 3000 Microgrant|
Dr. Leo Ferres, Universidad de Concepcion, Chile
Over the next five months, Dr. Ferres will be creating original material, including exercises, for five data structures. He will use the Intel® Manycore Testing Lab to test these data structures and expand the data available in the documents. More information on this project will be coming soon.
|Data Structures - USD $1000 Microgrant|
Dr. Kishore Kothapalli, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, India
Dr. Kishore will be including OpenMP programs in his upcoming assignments (in addition to the regular C programs). He will use the resulting materials to create a much tighter integration of parallel thinking and data structures in his award winning courses.
|Thread safe data structure - USD $1000 Microgrant|
Dr. Dinesh Kulkarni, Walchand College of Engineering, Sangli, India
Dr. Kulkarni will be teaching a new course aimed at teaching the inherent problem in concurrent data structures and techniques of building scalable data structures while maintaining the requisite semantics in multi-threaded environment. He will also be addressing the strategies to decide when to use which concurrent data structures.
Upon completion all materials will be posted to the community Educational Exchange.
