Multicore World conference back for a second time in Wellington
Posted on 12-Dec-2012 13:57. | Tags Filed under: News.



Multicore World takes place this coming February 2013 in Wellington with the firm objective of increasing New Zealand’s opportunity to position itself at the front of a revolutionary advance in computing.

Taking place on February 19 and 20 at the Wellington Town Hall, Multicore World is the creation of Open Parallel director Nicolas Erdody.

The conference will discuss cutting edge technologies already under development, in which multicore machines are capable of incredible tasks as long as the software is written to take advantage of their capabilities.

Organisers say that in the next 10-15 years, there will be huge opportunities to translate sequential programming (‘traditional’) legacy code, and to create new software that takes full advantage of thousands of cores in the next generation of chips.

Here in New Zealand it is also used in the biggest CGI rendering facility in the world at Wellington's Weta Digital.

Around the world parallel computing is currently used to process vast quantities of data produced by the internet and the "big data" originating out of social networks and millions of intelligent data recording devices attached to the internet..

“We can foster an ecosystem of software communities, industry, academia and investors around this permanent change that affects every computer on the planet,” says Multicore World 2013 organiser Erdody.

“Our main conference goal is to provide IT decision-makers and software community leaders with knowledge and connections about the business and technology implications around multicore requirements over the coming years.

"Because parallel computing and multicore affects everyone, anyone with even half an interest in computers, smart devices and internet development should look to attend.”

The initial Multicore World 2013 programme is now available, a number of notable speakers have already been confirmed and more will be announced in the coming weeks.

Speakers include:

• Paul McKenney – distinguished engineer and Linux CTO of IBM (US);
• Poul-Henning Kamp – chief architect of Varnish and author of FreeBSD (Denmark);
• Professor Ian Foster – director, Computation Institute, Argonne National Laboratory (USA)
