Summary: Lehrstuhl Informatik 2
Zeit: Donnerstag, 16.04.2009, 11.00 Uhr
Ort: Seminarraum Informatik 11, Ahornstr. 55
(Altbau, 3. OG, Raum 2323)
Referent: Herr Dr. Clemens Grelck,
University of Amsterdam, NL
University of Hertfordshire, UK
Titel: From Implicit Concurrency Utilisation to Explicit
Concurrency Engineering: SaC and S-Net
The first generation of multicore processors has reached the mass computer market while the devel-
opment roadmaps of all major processor manufacturers promise a steep rise in the number of cores
for the near future. This paradigm shift in processor architecture brings parallel computing from the
niche market of supercomputing applications into the mainstream of computing. These new hardware
requirements will cause a similar paradigm shift in software engineering: To make efficient use of
available hardware resources, any software must become parallel. Established parallel programming
models and languages, however, are very much geared towards the needs of supercomputing appli-
cations: They allow expert programmers to achieve high runtime efficiency on a given class of ma-
chines, but incur development costs that are hardly justifiable outside supercomputing labs.
