Multicore Expo Call for Papers Open
The Call for Papers is now open with a deadline of December 15, 2008. Now in its 4th year, the Multicore Expo will host a wide variety of presentations focusing on:
Whether you're a member of the Multicore Association or not, you need to be involved in this extremely compelling conference.
Major progress continues at the Multicore Association!
Status from the Multicore Resource Management API Working Group
The group has completed updating two of the MCAPI® use cases (automotive and networking) to include information about resource management. Surveys of the POSIX APIs for synchronization and shared memory primitives have been completed and reviewed. The group has also reviewed information from member companies regarding their existing implementations of resource managers and vision for metadata. The group has created and reviewed initial requirements drafts for the synchronization primitives and shared memory primitives, and has voted to move the synchronization primitives into the draft specification writing phase. There's plenty of opportunity for you to get involved - join the discussions now.
