Lunch Break


Parallel Programming Models and Techniques / Pacific Software - Asaf Shelly
Parallel Programming is still partially supported by programming languages. There are also new and existing API sets for parallel computing. The most important information for completing the picture are the work models for the parallel environment. These models are fundamentally different from the models commonly used today. This session presented new models side by side with old and forgotten models for working in a parallel environment.
