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.

Multicore day 2016, 1 DEC 2016.

Multicore day 2016 programme is organized by UPMARC together with SICS.
Hosted by: Erik Hagersten and Tobias Wrigstad, UPMARC, Uppsala University.
Register here and join to find answers to these and more questions

  • Can programming languages help fighting the complexity of massively parallel systems?
  • Must scaling to the next order of magnitude require rewriting everything (again)?
  • How can I find that last nasty bug?

Support for Industrial Collaboration

  • UPMARC supports industrial collaboration projects. See here


  • Kim-Anh Tran was awarded the third prize for her work on compiling for energy-efficiency "SWOOP: Software Out-of-Order Execution for In-Order Architectures" in the ACM Student Research competition organised in conjunction with PACT'16. More details about the competition and prizes are available here:
  • Best poster award at IPDPS 2016 (IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium) Germán Ceballos won best poster award for the PHD forum at IPDPS.
  • 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".
