Neil Trevett will be the Keynote speaker at the Low Energy Application Parallelism (LEAP) Conference in the UK. LEAP 2013 will be the place to learn about and share the latest advances in the use of high-performance parallel computing technology on low-power mobile CPU, GPU, FPGA and embedded processors. Keynotes from ARM and Khronos will set the stage for world-class knowledge transfer around parallel computing on low-energy platforms happening May 21st-2nd 2013 in London.
After the success of the GPGPU-day 2012, a new GPGPU event will be organised in the Netherlands. Details will be available online later, however you can signup to the newsletter today to stay on top of upcoming event information.
AMD developer conference will be held November 11-14 in San Jose this year. This event gathers together many developers, companies and press. The deadline for submission is March 15, so if you are planning on submitting, you haven't much time left. The submission site is here.

Ars Technica has a three part series exploring major trends that will influence the mobile system-on-a-chip (SoC ) market over the next five to ten years. Including CPU to SoC and covering most of the large players in the field, this is a great read to get your Friday off to a good start.
The PowerVR G6100 is the latest addition to the highly efficient Series6 family of graphics IP cores, making it the smallest member of the "Rogue" area-optimized GPUs to date. A single core, single cluster GPU, it will enable mass-market adoption of OpenGL ES 3.0 on a wide range of computing platforms. Products supporting the latest APIs from Khronos will become a significant and growing part of a billion unit market by 2014. PowerVR Series6 is one of the first GPU architectures to achieve full conformance for OpenGL ES 3.0. Launched at MWC in Barcelona, the PowerVR G6100 is the smallest and most efficient GPU available on the market that can handle both graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.0 and DirectX9 Level 3 as well as GPU compute applications accelerated through OpenCL, Renderscript Compute or Filterscript.
All topics related to OpenCL are of interest, including OpenCL applications from any domain (e.g., scientific computing, video games, computer graphics, multimedia, information retrieval, optimization, text processing, data mining, finance, signal and image processing and numerical solvers), OpenCL performance analysis and modeling, OpenCL performance and correctness tools and proposed OpenCL extensions.
Mobica has joined the Khronos Group. Mobica is a British company focused on providing solutions to consumer electronics, automotive and industrial markets, with R&D centres in the UK, Poland and California. "We’re delighted to join the Khronos family and look forward to sharing our extensive experience in low-level graphics software" said Jim Carroll, CTO of Mobica. "We’re pleased to welcome Mobica to the Khronos Group and the benefits their multimedia and graphics expertise will bring to the Khronos community" said Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group.
The Mali OpenCL SDK provides developers a framework and series of samples for developing OpenCL 1.1 application on ARM Mali bases platforms such as the Mali-T600 family of GPUs. The many samples cover a wide range of uses cases that utilize the Mali GPU to achieve a significant improvement in performance when compared to running on the CPU alone.
