The next revolution in multicore, energy-efficient and high-performance computing.
Now in its fifth successful year, the multicore challenge is a conference and tools event held every year near Bristol and Bath. It considers both the challenges and opportunities in building products based on multiple cores – from embedded industrial/consumer products and PC applications to mobile phones and high performance compute clusters.
The conference is built on the South West’s international reputation as hub for multicore research and development, both legacy (e.g. Inmos and Division) and the vast array of present day innovators (e.g. XMOS, ST, Imagination, MindSpeed and ARM). The high-calibre of speakers and tool demonstrations attracts a wide range of delegates and companies and continues to grow year-on-year.
