The Khronos Brisbane Chapter this time around will have distinguished speaker Dr Josh Bowden from CSIRO, talking about developing OpenCL applications for High Performance Computing, as a package in R, and Daniel Filonik who will talk about his DataChopin novel interface for collaborative visualisation. The meetup gets underway on September 8th in Brisbane. More details online.
Computers — Open Access Journal is calling for papers. If you have an interest inHeterogeneous Computing Systems and Environment. Authors are invited to submit original contributions on the following topics: Applications, e.g., Internet of Things, heterogeneous computing; Data mining for IoT; Memory systems for heterogeneous devices; Programming models for heterogeneous systems and IoT and Security for low power networks. Guest editors are Dr. Benedict R. Gaster and Dr. Lee Howes.
Join the Khronos Group at the Synopsis ARC Processor Summit. There will be several sessions that discuss Khronos APIs and how they contribute to the Vision and Embedded Systems ecosystems, including: Neil Trevett - The Vision API Landscape; Advanced Vision Capabilities for Next-Generation SoCs; Using the OpenCL C Kernel Language for Embedded Vision Processors.
AMD TrueAudio Next (TAN) is a software development kit for GPU accelerated audio signal processing. TAN SDK Features Fast OpenCL parallel batch convolution engine; Multi-threaded, multi-queue, real-time architecture; Extendable open source API; CPU and GPU implementations for all functions and Sample applications for GPU acceleration of Virtual Reality audio.
StreamComputing is holding a 4-day training course from 24 to 28 October on OpenCL-on-FPGAs using Altera hardware. The goals include: correctly writing OpenCL code for FPGAs, learning to work with Quartus and understanding the important optimisation techniques. Complete details are available online.
Khronos Group is at SIGGRAPH this week. If you are going be sure to bookmark our SIGGRAPH event page containing our complete list of BOFs and Khronos related sessions. We’ll have free t-shirts, a Chapters BOF on Tuesday, several Khronos Tech BOFs on Wednesday as well as our famous After Party BOF Blitz where you can meet, ask questions and eat with some of the folks behind the Khronos technologies. Our Wednesday line-up includes:
Glare Technologies Indigo 4 renderer in its beta state is using OpenCL to deliver 100% pure GPU rendering. Glare Technologies says this “means very fast rendering on all OpenCL compliant GPUs, including AMD, Intel and Nvidia GPUs.”
The schedules for the all-day Khronos BOF Blitz and famous BOF Blitz After Party are now online. Featuring four BOFs on Wednesday July 27th, and a 5th BOF on Tuesday July 26th for Khronos Chapters. We’ve also compiled a list of all the SIGGRAPH sessions, courses, workshops and BOFs that contain Khronos Technology. Unsurprisingly there is a ton of Vulkan stuff going on this year. Checkout the event page today. Hope to see lots of you in Anaheim during SIGGRAPH!
