Markus Levy, Multicore Developers Conference Chairman, has this to say regarding multicore technology and the upcoming event:
As we prepare for the 8th Annual Multicore Developers Conference, it’s interesting to reflect on the evolution of the industry towards the adoption of multicore technology. Certainly, multicore has become the norm – in both embedded and high-performance computing. Definitely, the focus of multicore now encompasses homogeneous and heterogeneous perspectives, as well as the infinite array of cores in many-core devices. Decidedly, both hardware and software vendors have crafted imaginative solutions to enable easier-to-use and higher-performance multicore implementations.
Despite this incredible evolution, there’s still much more to learn about the ways in which system developers can utilize the full benefits of multicore devices. A large percentage of this learning relates directly to application-specific design characteristics, whether it be for smart phones, networking and LTE equipment, automobiles, or supersonic fighter jets. On the other hand, regardless of the application, there are many general techniques and concepts that would benefit every system developer. Furthermore, with such an abundance of available multicore solutions, it has become ever so difficult to select the right product to do the job.
As we’ve done since the inception of Multicore Developers Conference, we will once again bring you state-of-the-art technical sessions and panel discussions spanning the gamut of domain-specific and general techniques. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from leading industry VIPs who will provide you with authoritative perspectives on how multicore processor technology will affect your business and product development, and help us look into the future of what multicore will bring.
The Multicore Developers Conference is targeted at 7 key embedded application areas:
- Smartphones and Tablets
- Networking and Telecom
This year, the Multicore Developers Conference has numerous Keynote speakers, CTO talks and Industry Analysts on hand to provide concise and insightful sessions regarding the industry and the technology. The goal is to for attendees to learn and become experts in the following areas:
- Applying virtualization technology
- Debug and Trace
- Legacy migration
- SoC design methodologies
- Software design strategies
- Performance analysis and optimization
The Keynote speakers will start the two days with the following talks:
- May 21st – The Forks in the Multicore Road: Multicore Directions in the Next Decade
- May 22nd – The Emerging Future of Multicore Software: Evolving from Desktop Multicore to Embedded Multicore Software
Throughout the conference Industry Analysts will be addressing topics such as:
- Achieving Maximum System Performance With Manycore Network Processors: Homegrown or Off-The-Shelf?
- Heterogeneous Multicore in Mobile Applications
- How Operating Systems and Tools Will Face the Many Software Challenges of Manycore
- Multicore chips – Have we Created a Monster?
- Power in Small Places: The Inevitability of Embedded HPC
- Software RULES the World
To truly become an expert in this field, it’s necessary to have a both a deep and broad understanding of the various aspects of the technology. Below are just some of the many tracks that are available for registered attendees:
- Cache Optimizing Real-Time, Multicore Systems
