I’d like to specifically remind all of you in the Austin, TX area that this year’s LLVM in HPC workshop, held in conjunction with SC’15, and in cooperation with SIGHPC, will take place on Sunday, November 15th: 9 - 5:30 at the Hilton across from the convention center. We have a really nice selection of talks this year on a wide variety of HPC-relevant LLVM-related topics. You’ll find year’s agenda is below.
For more information, please visit http://llvm-hpc2-workshop.github.io/
If you’re interested in attending, and I hope that you are, you’ll need to register for the SC’15 workshops - which will cost you $200 ($100 for students), please see http://sc15.supercomputing.org/register for more information. On the bright side, that fee covers all 22 full-day and 20 half-day workshops held over three days (http://sc15.supercomputing.org/program/workshops).
I’ll also use this opportunity to again thank the members of our community who served on the program committee and helped to review the submitted papers. We had twelve submissions this year, of which we accepted seven.
