The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol has many research and teaching activities related to heterogeneous many-core computing and computer graphics. We are developing a number of applications and programming models that exploit OpenCL to deliver higher performance on many-core processors from multiple different hardware vendors. We also work closely with industrial partners, helping them adopt Khronos computing-oriented APIs for their own software.   For more information, please visit
