2012 International Workshop on Languages for the Multi-core Era
June 13 2012, at ECOOP 2012, Beijing China http://ecoop12.cs.purdue.edu/ (also colocated with PLDI, ISMM, LCTES, the X10 workshop, and other events)
LaME is an interactive venue for exposing, evaluating, and developing programming language support for concurrency. This workshop provides a forum for the proposal and discussion of creative ideas that spur the development of innovative or improved concurrency models, languages, run-time systems, libraries and tools for multicore programming.
Concurrent programming has become a fundamental approach for leveraging the processing power of modern multi-core architectures. And, although research in concurrent programming models and languages is decades old, writing concurrent software today continues to be challenging and error-prone as always. The advent of multi-core architecture refueled the quest for efficient concurrency models and productive programming languages. Consequently, the last decade has been witness to a growing effort of research in this area. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for the proposal and discussion of new ideas in concurrent programming languages and models, and to provide feedback to authors in an informal atmosphere.
LaME 2012 was a success
We want to acknowledge the contributions of all involved in preparing and also attending LaME. We had full house and a very rewarding day of presentations and debate.
