Uppsala Programming for Multicore Architectures Research Center

Our goal

is to develop the insights that enable new tools and approaches to make parallel programming easier, and to demonstrate their effectiveness through prototype implementations on real problems.

  • Independent Pedagogical Award 2016: David Black-Schaffer has been awarded the Independent Pedagogical Award 2016! The theme was "Integration of digital resources in teaching and learning". The motivation: David Black-Schaffer accounts for a dedicated and enthusiastic integration of digital resources in teaching and learning. The students work actively and are supported in their learning process with very elaborated digital teaching material. With great passion, he develops, uses and renews a "flipped classroom teaching", which he has also shared with students and teachers. This full-scale integration of digital resources stimulates learning and makes the studying fun. [Editor's translation]
