CppCon 2019 Banner
September 15-20, 2019
Gaylord Rockies , Aurora, CO, USA

CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community. You will enjoy inspirational talks and a friendly atmosphere designed to help attendees learn from each other, meet interesting people, and generally have a stimulating experience. Taking place this year in Aurora, Colorado, near the Denver airport, and including multiple diverse tracks, the conference will appeal to anyone from C++ novices to experts.

Khronos Group Quiet Room Sponsorship

This year, The Khronos Group is making it possible for CppCon to provide not one, but two one-thousand square foot rooms to provide attendees with the down-time opportunity they need to stay at their best during CppCon 2019.

CppCon is an intense conference

CppCon is so intense that Kate Gregory wrote about it in her 2015 blog post, Surviving an intense conference. This was from the second year of the conference’s existence. The conference has only gotten more intense in the last four years, making the advise she gives even more valuable.

CppCon has five days (nine if you include classes) full of content from 08:00 to 22:00. An event-filled week made up of very long days.

There are twenty classes, a field trip, over seven tracks of breakout sessions, daily plenary talks, BoFs, Open Content sessions, dinners, author signings, a poster competition, podcasts recorded onsite, the conference-swag shop, exhibitors, panels, a bookstore, a day-long ISO C++ Study Group meeting, lightning talks, and a Tool Time session.

All this, but the most important part is, there are over a thousand attendees, including over a hundred speakers, who you want to meet and who want to engage with you.

No one can do it all.

Taking care of you

You’ll get the most out of the conference if you are at your best and staying at your best means getting the quiet time you need. Staying at the Gaylord Rockies makes it possible, during a single breakout session, to slip back to your room, catch a cat nap, and return refreshed for the next session.

Khronos Quiet Rooms

An even nearer and quicker option are the Khronos Quiet Rooms, which will be the perfect place for you to recharge yourself and your devices while reading email, editing slides, fixing bugs, or just relaxing between events. They are not for conversations, either in person or on the phone, nor for listening to anything without headphones, because we want to make certain they are relaxing for other attendees as well.

In CPPCON 2018, we presented "A Modern C++ Programming Model for CPUs using Khronos SYCL", which provided an introduction to GPU programming using SYCL.

This talk will take this further. It will present the GPU architecture and the GPU programming model;

This talk will use SYCL as a programming model for demonstrating the concepts being presented, however, the concepts can be applied to any other heterogeneous programming model such as OpenCL or CUDA. SYCL allows users to write standard C++ code which is then executed on a range of heterogeneous architectures including CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, FPGAs and other accelerators. On top of this SYCL also provides a high-level abstraction which allows users to describe their computations as a task graph with data dependencies, while the SYCL runtime performs data dependency analysis and scheduling. SYCL also supports a host device which will execute on the host CPU with the same execution and memory model guarantees as OpenCL for debugging purposes, and a fallback mechanism which allows an application to recover from failure.
