UPCRC Illinois Summer School on Multicore Programming - July 2010
July 19-23, 2010
Siebel Center for Computer Science
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
**Our Online Application is Now Closed**
The 2010 UPCRC Illinois Summer School offers experienced programmers, with little or no exposure to parallelism, an opportunity to learn about multicore programming.
Our program will provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of multicore programming, offer hands-on experience with the use of multicore languages and libraries, and introduce emerging research topics. Upon completion, participants will be familiar with available tools, languages, and libraries that can be used to develop parallel programs, the pros and cons of those utilities, and will be able to choose the programming environment that best matches their multicore application needs.
Visit here to learn what participants had to say about our 2009 summer school.
Please Note: This program is a one-week, intensive workshop and does not provide credit toward a degree program.
- a solid understanding of and experience with programming
