Does your multicore program drive like a car with a blown tire or an overheated engine? With the number of processors on a chip increasing, the growing use of hardware accelerators, and the competition for shared resources, programmers need tools that will help them get rolling and unearth the full potential of high-octane hardware designs.

In addition to harnessing the hardware power, multicore programming tools must support models to enable applications to scale, advocate for the preservation of existing software investments, and simplify the increasingly complex architectures of many processors and accelerators.

Markus Levy (Multicore Association® President) and Sven Brehmer (Chairman of the Multicore Communications API Working Group and President of PolyCore Software, Inc.) will discuss the roadside service options for approaching these challenges and getting your multicore program in turbo-charge mode.
