The Khronos Group is hosting a series of DevUs, educational sessions, Member F2F meetings and news conferences aimed at the educational community. The Khronos Pan Pacific Road Show 2012 is devoted to the Pan Pacific region with a focus on education and training, OpenGL and OpenGL ES, OpenCL, WebGL, WebCL OpenVG, OpenSL ES and OpenMAX. Complete details on all the upcoming events can be found on the Khronos Group event page. The next events will be held in Taipei on February 17 2012. We've just increased our number of seats, so registration is open again.
The Khronos Group's growth continues to be significant and demonstrates the huge opportunity we share as members of this highly specialized industry. Throughout 2012, Khronos is hosting a series of media events, educational sessions and F2F meetings for consortium members and prospective clients. The Khronos Pan Pacific Road Show 2012 is devoted to our members and colleagues in the Pan Pacific region with a focus on education and training. Complete details on all the upcoming events can be found on the Khronos Group event page. The first events will be held in Taiwan starting February 13 2012.
"Despite the last few years of dismal news on the employment front, software engineers with backgrounds in high performance computing are in high demand. This is mainly due to the fact that HPC systems require engineers trained in the intricacies of parallel programming -- OpenCL, MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, and such. While these software frameworks are well known in the HPC realm, most computer science programs do not offer classes in them at the undergrad level. And there are only a handful of specialized HPC curriculums in the country, most of which are associated with DOE or NSF supercomputing centers." The Khronos Group is hoping that their Khronos Institute of Training and Education (KITE) initiative will help to ease the void in this field.
