Manycore Summer School
University of Glasgow, Scotland
16-20 July, 2018

The transition to manycore systems is arguably the greatest challenge facing the ICT industry, Computational Science, and Computing Science research. The manycore revolution is fundamentally changing multiple levels of the execution stack: from processor architecture, through systems software, to applications.

The Manycore Summer School gives researchers an opportunity to learn theory and practice in a range of emerging manycore technologies, from seven world-leading academic and industrial researchers. Participants will engage with cutting-edge material in lectures, hands-on labs, and interactive poster sessions. The Manycore Summer School will be held from Monday 16th to Friday 20th July 2018 at the University of Glasgow. Participants should arrive on Sunday 15th July.

Speakers are:

  • Mario Wolczko, Oracle Labs
    A Concise and Opinionated History of Virtual Machines
  • Matt Horsnell, arm
    Micro-architectural Security and Heterogeneous Computing
  • Jonathan Balkind, Princeton University
    OpenPiton Open Source Manycore Research Platform
  • Toni Collis, Women in HPC
    Developing a diverse, inclusive and resilient HPC community
  • Kerstin Eder, University of Bristol
    Whole Systems Energy Transparency: More power to software developers!
  • Hans Vandierendonck, Queen's University Belfast
    High-Performance Graph Analytics in Shared Memory
  • Andrew Brown, University of Southampton
    Event-driven computing


Registration and accommodation are free for PhD students and early career researchers (postdocs), thanks to generous sponsorship from EPSRC and SICSA. Participants only need to fund their own travel to Glasgow. We have a limited number of places for non-UK-based students, but this is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please complete the online application form to apply to participate in the Manycore Summer School. We also require an email letter of support from your supervisor or line manager, before we can confirm your registration. Full details are provided once you have completed the application form.
