OpenCL is the parallel computing framework mainly for systems connected high-speed computing cores such as GPU, Cell/B.E., and DSP with general purpose CPU. With the participation of the major semiconductor chip makers and computer vendors of this world, OpenCL has also been attracting lots of attentions as efficient, highly portable, and open technology.

Fixstars' OpemCL Programming Workshop includes programming exercise, optimization, and compilation with the FOXC (Fixstars OpenCL Cross Compiler) in OpenCL C language as well as basics, grammar, and programming explanation of OpenCL. Practical content with lecture and exercise will help you to acquire thorough knowledge of OpenCL programming. We hope we can join us!
