BSC, Hipeac and Microsoft Research is proud to organize the Second Barcelona Multicore Workshop (BMW) which will take place in Barcelona on 21-22 October 2010. Building on the success of the highly successful 2008 Barcelona Multicore Workshop, BMW2010 strives to examine critically the developments in the intervening two years.
Today, multicore chips are almost superseded by manycore processors . The most important issue facing the software community is how to program those machines in the most productive way. The most important issue facing the hardware community is how to design the many-cores so as to maximize the potential performance. Those issues describe the same challenge facing both communities: how to maximize the effectiveness of many-cores.
The proposed solutions to the above problem require a multidisciplinary HW-SW participation. The idea of BMW2010 is to bring together prominent researchers active across the field – computer architecture, programming languages and formal foundations in the course of a two day multicore workshop. Our goal is to cross-fertilize ideas across the HW and SW communities and discuss the cutting edge in research and products. The BMW2010 workshop will consist of a combination of invited talks, panel discussions and time for discussion.
