Intel generously sponsored an award for best student presentation and best student poster at LCPC. The selection committee included the LCPC steering committee and program committee members. All of the student presentations were well done, and we are happy to announce the following three standout presentations:

Best paper presentations (a tie for first place):

Automating library specialization using compiler-based autotuning

Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado

The LCPC workshop is a forum for sharing cutting-edge research on all aspects of parallel languages, compilers and related topics including runtime systems and tools. The scope of the workshop spans foundational results and practical experience, and all classes of parallel processors including concurrent, multithreaded, multicore, accelerated, multiprocessor, and tightly-clustered systems. Given the rise of multicore processors, LCPC is particularly interested in work that seeks to transition parallel programming into the computing mainstream.

Co-located Event: CnC Workshop on Wednesday September 7, 2011

The workshop will be a forum for users and potential users of Concurrent Collections (CnC), to discuss experiences with CnC and a range of topics, including future developments for the language, applications, usability, performance, semantics, and teaching of CnC.
