Multicore DevCon 2013: Call for Presentations

Dedicated to Developers Using Multicore and Virtualization Technologies

EL DORADO HILLS and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Multicore Developers Conference, the premier conference devoted to the multicore and manycore technologies that are transforming the embedded computing industry, announced today the 'call for presentations' as well as high-visibility sponsorship opportunities. Now back to its roots as a stand-alone event focused on multicore technology, the eighth annual event will take place May 21-22, 2013 at the Santa Clara Hyatt Hotel.

The conference organizers are also announcing an extensive collaboration with Extension Media, publishers of the Engineers' Guide to Multicore and Virtualization and EECatalog.com. Although the primary focus is on the actual Multicore DevCon event, this collaboration is designed to expand its network of multicore engineers around the world and create an ongoing media platform for delivering high-value information focused on multicore and virtualization throughout 2013.

The Multicore DevCon will consist of business-related and technical tracks, providing a thorough approach to designing embedded multicore solutions. Presentation and panel discussion topics will cover subjects such as multicore use in application-specific topics (i.e. Android, automotive, cloud computing, mil/aero, networking and LTE equipment, smart phones), business topics such as predictions and trends, evolutionary topics such as manycore technologies, and general topics such as multicore debug, software frameworks, parallel programming techniques, protocols, and optimizations.

"As we prepare for the 8th Annual Multicore Developers Conference, it's interesting to reflect on the industry's evolution towards the adoption of multicore technology. Decidedly, both hardware and software vendors have crafted imaginative solutions to enable easier-to-use and higher-performance multicore implementations," said Markus Levy, Multicore DevCon conference chair. "Despite this incredible evolution, there's still much more to learn about the ways in which system developers can utilize the benefits of multicore devices, thereby making Multicore DevCon the industry's top forum in which the key issues of the multicore ecosystem can be raised, debated, and resolved. Furthermore, working with Extension Media, we will bring to the attendees of the Multicore DevCon, a tremendous amount of knowledge that will help bridge the gap between hardware and software in the use of multicore technology."

The Multicore DevCon will feature more than 40 exhibitors focused on providing a wide variety of multicore technologies. Additional information and resources are available at http://www.multicoredevcon.com and on Twitter at https://twitter.com/multicoredevcon. Registration for qualified attendees is free if forms are received by February 28, 2013. Registration for non-qualified attendees is $495 if received by February 28, 2013. Registration for full-time students and professors is $95. Additionally, Multicore DevCon sponsorships and exhibition space can be reserved by contacting Clair Bright at [email protected] or by calling (415) 255-0390 x15.

Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by FTC, CUI/DFARS, EU-GDPR and the underlying National Cybersecurity Framework suggest the need for a ground-up re-thinking of security strategies and compliance actions. This session offers actionable advice based on case studies to demonstrate the impact of security and privacy attributes for the cloud-backed IoT and AI ecosystem.
Transformation Abstract Encryption and privacy in the cloud is a daunting yet essential task for both security practitioners and application developers, especially as applications continue moving to the cloud at an exponential rate. What are some best practices and processes for enterprises to follow that balance both security and ease of use requirements? What technologies are available to empower enterprises with code, data and key protection from cloud providers, system administrators, insiders, government compulsion, and network hackers? Join Ambuj Kumar (CEO, Fortanix) to discuss best practices and technologies for enterprises to securely transition to a multi-cloud hybrid world.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
