OpenMP ARB Announces Line-Up of World-Class Keynotes, Speakers, Tutorials and Panel Sessions for Annual OpenMPCon Developer Conference
OpenMPCon to Showcase Latest Advances in High-Performance Computing using Directive Based Parallel Programming Languages Such As OpenMP[*]
July 13th, 2015 – The OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB) today announced the full line-up of world-class keynote speakers, technical presentations, tutorials and panel sessions to be hosted at the inaugural OpenMPCon Developer Conference, which will be held in Aachen, Germany, 28-30 September, 2015.

“The strength of this year’s program looks set to establish OpenMPCon as the single most important event for all OpenMP developers.” said Michael Wong, OpenMP CEO. “I’m delighted with both the depth and breadth of the program which caters to both the novice and experienced developer. Most importantly we have provided plenty of time in the program for delegates to network with colleagues, share experience and leave having had all their questions answered.”
Representatives of OpenMP and OpenMPCon will be present at the ISC High Performance event on the JARA stand #1320 between 13-15 July in Frankfurt, Germany to discuss OpenMPCon and offer developers OpenMP C/C++ and Fortran reference cards.
