Jun 12, 2012 (04:06 PM EDT)

URBANA, Ill., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Software engineering practitioners and researchers with little or no exposure to parallelism will have an opportunity to learn about multicore programming at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) during our July 9th – 13th Illinois-Intel Parallelism Center Summer School on Multicore Programming. We're excited about the direction our program is taking this year, offering a deep dive into Java parallel programming and the Eclipse platform.

We have an exciting lineup of teachers including:
- Dr. Cliff Click (0xdata)
- Dr. Danny Dig (University of Illinois)
- Mr. Stephen Heumann (University of Illinois)
- Mr. Richard Hudson (Intel Corporation)
- Dr. Doug Lea (State University of New York at Oswego), lead architect of Java concurrency libraries
- Dr. Tim Mattson (Intel Corporation), co-author of the most influential book on parallel patterns
- Dr. Darko Marinov
- Dr. Marc Snir (University of Illinois), the co-inventor of MPI

The curriculum for the program has been refined and tested both in prior summer schools and in industry courses. The courses have received very high reviews from participants, and we're confident our Multicore Summer School will be useful to those wanting to apply parallel programming techniques to their code.

Please see the 2012 I2PC Summer School on Multicore Programming website ( for a tentative course schedule, prerequisites for participation in the school, information about fees, and to register online! Registration closes on June 24th, or when our 60-participant maximum has been reached.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the workshop coordinator, Megan Osfar (
