Singapore Gelato conference seeks presenters

Jun 29, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

The Gelato Federation is seeking presenters and exhibitors for the Gelato Itanium Conference & Expo (ICE) to be held in Singapore on October 1-4. Gelato ICE is the only conference specifically dedicated to Linux on the Intel Itanium architecture, conference organizers say.

Gelato ICE Singapore will feature three full days and 40 technical presentations spotlighting Linux on Itanium-based platforms. Session topics will include Itanium Linux optimization, scalability, compilers, grids, user applications, and multi-core programming.

“With the upcoming release of the dual-core Intel Itanium 'Montecito' processor, we are very pleased to provide ICE presentations on multi-core programming to address the software challenges and opportunities it brings,” stated Mark K. Smith, Gelato managing director. “We are also excited about holding Gelato ICE in Singapore, given the strong Itanium processor adoption rate in the Asia-Pacific region.”

The Gelato Federation describes itself as a “global technical community dedicated to advancing Linux on the Intel Itanium-based platform.” Gelato members share the goal of “producing open-source solutions for academic, government, and industrial high-performance computing users,” according to the group.

The group says it will be accepting speaker/topic proposals until July 31 from researchers, developers, engineers, end users, system vendors, and ISVs who are knowledgeable about the platform and willing to give a presentation on a technical level.
