Topic 11: Multicore and Manycore Programming
Modern multicore and manycore systems enjoy the benefits of technology scaling and promise impressive performance. However, harvesting this potential is not straightforward. While multicore and manycore processors alleviate several problems that are related to single-core processors – known as memory-, power-, or instruction-level parallelism-wall – they raise the issue of the programmability and programming effort. This topic focuses on novel solutions for multicore and manycore programmability and efficient programming in the context of generalpurpose systems.
