The Center for Hybrid Multicore Productivity Research is a collaborative research center sponsored by the National Science Foundation with two university partners (UMBC and University of California San Diego), six government, and seven industry members. The Center's research is focused on addressing productivity, performance, and scalability issues in meeting the insatiable computational demands of its members' applications through the continuous evolution of multicore architectures and open source tools.
As part of its annual industrial advisory board meeting next week, the center will hold an afternoon of public tutorials from 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Monday, 17 December 2012 in room 456 of the ITE building at UMBC. The tutorials will be presented by students doing research sponsored by the Center and feature some of the underlying technologies being used and some of their applications. The tutorials are:
- GPGPUs – Tim Blattner and Fahad Zafa
- Cloud Policies – Karuna Joshi
- Human Sensors Networks – Oleg Aulov
- Machine Learning Disaster Warnings – Han Dong
- Graph 500 – Tyler Simon
- HBase – Phuong Nyguen
The tutorial talks are free and open to the public. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by email to Dr. Valerie L. Thomas, firstname.lastname@example.org.
