Course on Parallel Programming in Medellín Colombia
Prof. Castrillon gave an intensive course on “Parallel Programming with Models of Computation” during the week of May 16th, 2016 at the Universidad de Antioquia in Medellín, Colombia. The course discussed fundamentals of parallelism, parallelizing compilers and compilation for so-called parallel dataflow programming models. It was attended by students and researchers at all levels, including professors, PhD students as well as students of the masters and bachelor programs of electronic engineering and computer science, both from the Universidad de Antioquia and the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana.
For this course, Prof. Castrillon was invited by Prof. Sebastian Isaza, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Antioquia, where he is also part of the SISTEMIC research group. The course was financed by Colciencias, an agency that fosters science, technology and innovation in Colombia. We would like to thank Colciencias, Prof. S. Isaza and the course attendees for this interesting week in Medellín.
