Eurolab4HPC Industry Day Co-organized with Multicore Day 2018

Eurolab4HPC, Chalmers University of Technology, Uppsala University and RISE SICS are proud to present the program for Multicore Day 2018. The Multicore Day has been organized by Uppsala University and RISE SICS as an annual event for more than ten years. This year it is organized for the first time in collaboration with the Eurolab4HPC project. The event typically attracts a few hundred people mainly from the IT Industry and also from academia. It is an excellent match-making event for academics and industrial practitioners interested in HPC and multicore technology.
