The multicore challenge is a conference held every year in Bristol. It considers both the challenges and opportunities in building products based on multiple cores – from embedded products such as mobile phones to high performance compute clusters.
The conference is held in Bristol to build on the city’s legacy (e.g. Inmos and Division) and present (e.g. XMOS, ST, Imagination, MindSpeed, etc.) but attracts a wide range of delegates and companies (2012 attracted over 130 companies from 13 countries).
