Parallelism, the Cloud, and the Tools of the Future for the next generation of practitioners

SESSION: Special Topic: Workforce Development

EVENT TYPE: Workforce Development Panel

TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

Panelists:Matthew Wolf, Benedict Gaster, Tim Mattson, Kevin Goldsmith, Dick Brown


Industry, academia and research communities face increasing workforce preparedness challenges in parallel (and distributed) computing, due to the onslaught of multi-/many-core and cloud computing platforms. What initiatives have begun to address those challenges? What changes to hardware platforms, languages and tools will be necessary? How will we train the next generation of engineers for ubiquitous parallel and distributed computing? Following on from the successful model used at SC10, the session will be highly interactive, combining aspects of BOF, workshop, and Panel discussions. An initial panel will lay out some of the core issues in this topic with experts from multiple areas in education and industry. Following this will be moderated breakouts, much like collective mini-BOFS, for further discussion and to gather ideas from participants about industry and research needs.

Moderator/Panelist Details:

Matthew Wolf (Moderator) - Georgia Institute of Technology

Benedict Gaster - AMD

Tim Mattson - Intel Corporation

Kevin Goldsmith - Adobe Systems Inc.

Dick Brown - St. Olaf's
