The Second International Summer School on
Trends in Concurrency
Prague, Czech Republic
Concurrency is a pervasive and essential characteristic of modern
computer systems. Whether it is the design of new hyper-threading
techniques in computer architectures, specification of non-blocking
data structures and algorithms, implementation of scalable computer
farms for handling massive data sets, or the design of a robust
software architecture for distributed business processes, a deep
understanding of mechanisms and foundations for expressing and
controlling concurrency is required. Recent architectural advances
in multi-core and many-core architectures have made this an essential
topic for any serious student of computer science.
This summer school will bring together outstanding researchers from
academia and industry to discuss current research and future trends
in concurrent systems design and implementation. All instructors
have had significant impact in the area of concurrency, and play
an active role in substantial ongoing research and commercial
The speakers include the following researchers.
- Byron Cook, Microsoft Research
- Neal Glew, intel Research
- Jan-willem Maessen, Sun Laboratories.
