Euro-Par 2017 mF2C Workshop

Reading Time: 2 minutes


mF2C has organized a workshop in Euro-Par 2017,

The workshop deals with the different aspects related to innovative large and distributed computing scenarios that are envisioned as the natural evolution of current cloud scenarios. The workshop also address the different aspects of parallel programming, its applicability to those scenarios and any other software required to suitable manage such a complex scenario.

The following is the final agenda
