The Intel eXtreme Performance Users Group (IXPUG) is an active community-led forum for sharing industry best practices, techniques, and tools for maximizing efficiency on Intel platforms and products. This meeting will focus on all aspects of employing and adopting many-core processing technologies and techniques for optimal application execution, including topics that cover system hardware beyond the processor (e.g. memory, interconnect); software tools and programming models; and new workloads (e.g. visualization, data analytics, machine learning).

Call for Presentations

IXPUG welcomes submissions on innovative work from Intel platform and product users in academia, industry and government labs, describing original discoveries and experiences that will promote and prescribe efficient use of many-core and multi-core systems. The authors of the best scored abstracts and draft presentations will be selected for a 30 minute technical presentation; others may be offered an opportunity to present a shorter 10-15 minute lightning talk.
