Symposium: The Future of Computing Performance: Game Over or Next Level?
The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board will be holding a symposium, The Future of Computing Performance: Game Over or Next Level?, on March 22, 2011 in Washington, DC.
An agenda is available here.
This symposium will provide an overview of CSTB's recently released report on sustaining growth in computing performance and build on it to further explore such topics as hardware trends and challenges (emerging computer architectures, power constraints, etc.), software needs (software abstractions and programming models for parallelism, rethinking the software stack, etc.), and implications for research and education. Speakers will include:
Dan Dobberpuhl, Consultant
The symposium will be held at the Venable LLC Conference Center (in the Terrrell building, 575 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC), located one block West of the National Academies Keck Building.
