Advanced Simulation Library (ASL) is a free and open source multiphysics simulation software package. Its computational engine is based, among others, on the Lattice Boltzmann Methods and is written in OpenCL which enable extraordinarily efficient deployment on a variety of massively parallel architectures, ranging from inexpensive FPGAs, DSPs and GPUs up to heterogeneous clusters and supercomputers. ASL is distributed under the free GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL) with an optional commercial license.

The Khronos OpenVX working group is soliciting quotes for enhancing and expanding the OpenVX Conformance Test Suite. OpenVX is an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications. Any company, whether a Khronos member or not, is cordially invited to contact Khronos and provide a quote. Interested parties can access the details of the request on the Khronos website.

Avtech Scientific announced the first open source release of its Advanced Simulation Library (ASL). Advanced Simulation Library is a free and open source multiphysics simulation software package. Its computational engine is based, among others, on the Lattice Boltzmann Methods and is written in OpenCL which enable efficient deployment on a variety of massively parallel architectures, ranging from inexpensive FPGAs, DSPs and GPUs up to heterogeneous clusters and supercomputers.

The International Workshop for OpenCL (IWOCL) papers from 2013 and 2014 are now available online from the ACM digital library. The next IWOCL conference will be held at Stanford University this coming May 12-13. Next week during GDC the Khronos Group is holding an OpenCL session on March 4th to present significant announcements in the OpenCL ecosystem, including SYCL and SPIR.

If you’re interested in WebGL development, then you might enjoy My forays into JavaScript by Stavros Papadopoulos. A white paper, WebGL GUI library, and terrain rendering engine all rolled into one. The GUI toolkit is desktop and Android inspired, but it’s rendered with WebGL. There’s a live demo that loads chunks of terrain data as you fly around – the terrain is rendered offline by a Delphi program.

Ceemple is an innovative solution enabling rapid development of C++ based technical and scientific computing applications. It features JIT compiler and pre-integrated libraries for maximum development productivity, combined with the performance and integration of standard C++. Ceemple now supports OpenCL targets with the bundled OpenCV computer vision library, for improved run-time performance.

Cesium is an open-source JavaScript library for creating 3D globes and 2D maps in a web browser without a plugin. It uses WebGL for hardware-accelerated graphics and glTF for 3D models. Version 1.0 includes support for worldwide high-resolution terrain; global imagery from standards such as WMS and Bing Maps; vector data from GeoJSON and TopoJSON; and a large geometry library.
