OpenCL is an industry standard programming model available on a wide range of platforms from multiple vendors. It is an established technology that has been in use commercially for several years. It is not used in the academic community, however, anywhere near as much as it could be. To help correct this shortcoming, the creators of OpenCL (the Khronos Open Standards group) is launching a program to fund a number of course development projects. We do not anticipate that the level of funding associated with this program will cover the full cost of course development. Rather, our funds will augment OpenCL courseware projects in place or in the planning stages. If this type of course development sounds interesting to you, read the entire call for proposals.
