Boston Lisp Meeting:
Marc Battyani on
Leveraging Common Lisp and FPGAs for
ultra high performance computing
A Boston Lisp Meeting will take place on Monday, May 24th 2010 at 1800 at MIT 34-401B. Marc Battyani will speak about Leveraging Common Lisp and FPGAs for ultra high performance computing.
Additionally, we will have two Lightning Talks. Speakers to be announced.
Note that lacking a sponsor, buffet will no longer be offered after our meetings.
|1 Marc Battyani on Leveraging Common Lisp and FPGAs for ultra high performance computing|
Programming FPGAs for high performance computing applications is a very complex and not really well specified or even understood task and this is why the use of Common Lisp is a key enabler for this kind of applications. We will show how we use Common Lisp to generate code that beats C/C++ by several orders of magnitude.
|2 Lightning Talks|
At every meeting, before the main talk, there are two slots for strictly timed 5-minute "Lightning Talks" each followed by 2 minutes for questions and answers.
The slots for next meeting are still open. Step up and come talk about your pet project! Contact me at fare at tunes.org.
|3 Time and Location|
The Lisp Meeting will take place on Monday, May 24th 2010 at 1800 (6pm) at MIT 34-401B.
Note that it's a new location.
Many thanks go to Alexey Radul for arranging for the room, and to MIT for welcoming us.
|4 No Dinner|
We haven't been able to renew sponsorship from our usual partners for 2010, and are not planning to have after-meeting buffet anymore at this point. An informal group will probably gather to have dinner within walking distance of the venue.
|5 More about the Meeting|
