Summer School "Getting Moore from Multi-Cores"
Amsterdam
4 - 8 July 2011


About this summer school
This summer school explores the changing face of computer systems and will provide you with new programming skills in getting the most from the current trend to multi-core architecture. Technology constrains mean it is no longer feasible to increase clock rates in newer generations of processors. Instead Moore's law now dictates the doubling of the number of cores in each new generation of processor chip. Multi-core architecture is now common in both standard CPUs (central processing unit) and in GPUs (graphics processing unit).

During this week you will be introduced to new concepts in concurrent programming, introduced to new languages and you will get to grips with programming hundreds of cores in several different architectures.

Cost
This week will cost you € 25 including lunch, 1 dinner, and some other social activities. Professionals that already have a bachelor's or master's degree pay € 700.

Housing:
- Flat for bachelor students from the Netherlands: € 44
- Flat for other students: € 220
- Hotel room for professionals (or students): about € 320

Application
Attendance is limited to 25 people. It is therefore imperative that you send you intent to participate as soon as possible to Floris Klaver. Admissions close on June 25th. Include the following information:
- name, address
- phone number
- programming experience
- a (very short) description of 1 or 2 hobby projects
- your current studies, what year and at what institution

We will evaluate all requests and judge them partially on your enthusiasm. When you really love to program, show it in your application!
