Why Multicore - As Moore's Law highlights, the history of computing has been one of ever increasing power. As the end of the 20th Century approached, chip manufacturers began to encounter physical barriers that had the potential to limit further growth. To solve this problem, manufacturers changed the architecture, building more processors into a single chip, calling them Multicore chips. This new architecture heralds not only greater speed but opens up a whole new World of application development. However, this new and exciting scenario comes with a challenge.
The Role of Multicore World
Why Multicore World – The main goal of this conference is to provide CIOs, CTOs and software community leaders with the knowledge and connections they need, to make valid business and technology decisions in terms of their multicore software and hardware strategies for the coming years. Multicore World 2013 continues the successful path initiated at the miniconferences “Multicore and Parallel Computing” part of LCA2010 (Wellington) and LCA2011 (Brisbane, Australia), and the inaugural Multicore World 2012 (Wellington).
The Organiser - Open Parallel Ltd. (http://www.openparallel.com/), a New Zealand based company specialised in Software for Multicore and Parallel Computing has been working in multicore for years. Open Parallel organises the second edition of Multicore World – a global conference about Multicore Technologies (software and hardware).
