Multicore processors are forcing a rethink of hardware design as well as programming practices. The virtual event will highlight how engineers, managers, designers, developers and programmers decide on multiple identical CPU cores or a mix of difference CPU cores for each task; the best way to harness all the horsepower; and whether or not multicore chips really reduce power consumption.  Whatever the answers, multicore isn't going away -- it's a design reality.  

Rick Merritt, Editor at Large, EE Times and Jim Turley, Principal Analyst, Silicon Insider will serve as the virtual conference's co-chairs.

In the Auditorium, the keynote presentation "Multicore, Meganonsense, and the Future, if We Get It Right" will be presented by Yale Patt, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Ernest Cockrell, Jr. Centennial Chair in Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin.  In addition, the event tracks include:  High-End Multicore Chips: How Much Performance Can You Get?; Simple Matter of Programming: Software for Multicore; and Highly Integrated Multicore Chips: Balancing Power, Price, and Peripherals.

The event will also offer an Exhibit Hall with booths from platinum sponsor WindRiver; gold sponsor Intel; and supporting sponsor Mentor Embedded.

In the Networking Lounge event attendees will be able to chat with peers one-on-one or in group chats.
