OpenMPCon is organized by and for the OpenMP community and is uniquely positioned to provide both novice and experienced developers new insights into using directive based APIs such as OpenMP.

OpenMPCon is partnering closely with its sister-event IWOMP (the International Workshop on OpenMP) which will be holding its annual conference at the same location immediately after OpenMPCon. IWOMP’s focus is on presenting the latest research ideas and results relating to parallel programming with OpenMP. Delegates are encouraged to attend both events and discounted ‘attend-all-sessions’ tickets will be available.

Who is giving the talks? You are!

In addition to our invited speakers we also want to hear from you! We love to get you as an OpenMP user to talk about how you use OpenMP so that others can learn from your experience. Give a tutorial, describe your work, show a crazy idea, or just hang out. Interested in presenting a paper? See our Call for Papers!

What can you expect at OpenMPCon?

OpenMPCon is designed specifically for the OpenMP community of users — so you have a big say in what will happen there. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Invited talks and panels. Keynotes and sessions with some of the world’s leading experts in OpenMP. Have OpenMP questions? Ask them at an OpenMPCon panel featuring those at the cutting edge of the language.
  • Presentations by the OpenMP community. What do embedded systems, game development, high frequency trading, and particle accelerators have in common? OpenMP, of course! Expect talks from a broad range of domains focused on practical OpenMP techniques, libraries, and tools.
  • Tips and Tricks in OpenMP. What parallel language serves three General Purpose languages and is 16 years old, but also has among the first ever high-level support for SIMD/vectors and accelerators? The answer is OpenMP. To use it efficiently you need to know the ins and outs, and also the original spirit and intent of the language design.
  • Lightning talks. Get informed at a fast pace during special sessions of short, informal talks. Never presented at a conference before? This is your chance to share your thoughts on an OpenMP-related topic in an informal setting.
  • “Unconference” time. Evening events and between-time moments to relax, socialize, or start an impromptu coding session.
