AMD today announced a distinguished line-up of keynote speakers as well as technical session topics for the inaugural AMD Fusion Developer Summit (AFDS), which will be held June 13-16, 2011 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington.
Industry keynote presentations will be delivered by esteemed industry experts from AMD, ARM and Microsoft. In his keynote "Heterogeneous Parallelism at Microsoft" Herb Sutter, Microsoft principal architect of Native Languages, will showcase upcoming innovations to bring access to increasingly heterogeneous compute resources directly into the world's most popular native languages.
Jem Davies, ARM fellow and vice president of Technology, Media Processing Division, will deliver a keynote about ARM's long history of heterogeneous computing, its future strategy, and ARM's support of standards, including OpenCL.
The summit will open and close with AMD keynote presentations as well. AMD corporate fellow Phil Rogers will explore the programmer's guide to Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), and Eric Demers, AMD corporate vice president and chief technology officer, Graphics, will deliver a keynote that chronicles the evolution of AMD's graphics cores and discuss next-generation AMD graphics technology.
