Call for Participation: UPMARC Summer School 2018

by Mohamed Faouzi Atig, May 3, 2018


The 10th UPMARC Multicore Computing Summer School
Uppsala University, Sweden
18-20 June, 2018




The 2018 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  18-20 June, 2018. 

The school is sponsored by the UPMARC research programme of Uppsala University (see 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:

* Sanjoy Baruah, Washington University, USA

* Michel Dubois, The University of Southern California, USA

* Daniele Lezzi, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain

* Shaz Qadeer, Microsoft Research, USA

* Philippas Tsigas, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

In addition, the school will include 

* A tutorial on Memory Consistency Models  given by Caroline Trippel (Princeton University, USA) and  Yatin Manerkar (Princeton University, USA)

* Several sessions 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 asynchronous event-driven programming ,  the design of  scalable data structures, building and maintaining large systems,  understanding consistency models, and analysis of real-time multi-core systems.   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.
