Hi everyone,

You might be interested in this and circulating it further. I have been
informed by the organiser that the discount listed also applies to members
of *any* other Australian Linux or HPC user group.

All the best, Lev

Multicore is unstoppable: the economics are driving it. *All computers are
now parallel computers*, meaning they can do more than one thing at a
time. *This is a permanent change that affects every computer programmer
on the planet*.

This new architecture opens up a whole new world of opportunities for
industry and science.

*However, Parallel Software is rare.*

To promote parallel software and an ecosystem of developers and
organisations, Open Parallel organises Multicore World -a yearly global
conference in New Zealand and invites you to participate and partner in
this successful event.


Multicore World is a retreat for technical influencers, a decision-takers
conference where industry managers, technical directors and distinguished
scientists interact at *peer-peer* level with software community leaders,
recognised practitioners, entrepreneurs, engineers, academics and
developers, in a boutique style conference with global repercussion.

*Join the best crowd worldwide*, precisely when they reflect what to
invest on next: Multicore World tells them the new trends, software and
hardware wise. The world of multicore and parallel computing is aware of
Multicore World 2014 before and after its occurrence and as a consequence,
you will be part of a year long conversation with global presence.


*The implications of multicore computing impact many industries not
traditionally considered data or computing intensive*. Today with the
cloud-based infrastructures even small bootstrapped technology start-ups
have access to massive computing clusters. This changes both the computing
landscape but also what is possible. Multicore CPUs are now part of the
mobile phone landscape and developing Apps that are multicore aware is
central to mobile OS development. Developing software and hardware
solutions, even data centres in a multicore world is radically different
than legacy solutions designed to exist on single core systems. Multicore
World bridges the gap every year presenting you the technical and business
implications of multicore systems.

Open Parallel's goal is also gather the impressive expertise available in
New Zealand and Australia that needs to be celebrated and leveraged. We
ultimately work towards becoming a *global hub in entrepreneurship based
in multicore technologies*.


*Benefits on participating at Multicore World*
