2017 UPMARC Summer School on Multicore Computing

by Bengt Jonsson, March 16, 2017

2017 UPMARC Summer School on Multicore Computing
Uppsala University, Sweden during 14-16 June, 2017.
Call for participation




The 2017 UPMARC Summer School on Multicore Computing focuses on research trends for scalable and correct multicore programs and systems and will take place at Uppsala University, Sweden during  14-16 June, 2017. 

The school is sponsored by the UPMARC research programme of Uppsala University (see upmarc.se). In particular, attendance of the summer school is *free*. (There is only a cancellation fee.) 


The school offers lectures given by leading researchers in the area, including:

* Farhad Arbab, Leiden University, The Netherlands

* Annette Bieniusa, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany

* Sumit Gulwani, Microsoft Research , USA

* Suresh Jagannathan, Purdue University, USA

* Alberto Ros, Universidad de Murcia, Spain

* Per Stenström, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

In addition, the school will include a session where students will be given the opportunity  to present  their own research.

School Objective

The lecturers will both cover foundations and  several emerging areas including the design of the semantics and implementation of transactions,  building and maintaining large systems,  program synthesis, understanding replication and consistency models, and the  cache and memory compression techniques.  We aim to attract graduate students,  scientists and young scientists both from academia and industry. Lectures will help in identifying and addressing fundamental challenges that will enable  programmers to leverage the potential performance from the ongoing shift to multi-core programming and cloud computing. Our goal is to  provide  a stimulating environment for participants to meet and establish contacts with other participants, world-class researchers from academia and industry, local faculty, and other senior scientists.

We strongly encourage people interested in participating to register as soon as possible.


• May 15th for Registration to the Summer School.
