Simon McIntosh-Smith and three of his research team from the University of Bristol are running a one-day workshop on {URL=}heterogeneous many-core computing with OpenCL{/url} at the IEEE/ACM SuperComputing conference in Denver, Colorado. This workshop, jointly organised with Intel and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, will give a hands-on introduction to programming multi-core CPUs and many-core GPUs using the OpenCL parallel programming standard. 

SC is the premier HPC conference each year, and so workshops at SC'13 were subject to fierce competition, with an acceptance rate of lower than 33%. Thus being selected to run an OpenCL workshop at SC is a prestigious success for the team.

The Bristol team includes Simon McIntosh-Smith, Dan Curran, James Price and Mike Boulton, all from the Department of Computer Science. Over 50 HPC researchers from around the world are expected to attend the workshop, which runs on Monday November 18th 2013.
