AMD today announced that AMD Fusion Developer Summit 2012 (Fusion12) will be held on June 11-14, 2012 in Bellevue, Washington. The company’s annual developer summit will return to the Meydenbauer Center and the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue.
This event will build on the success of the sold out AMD Fusion11 earlier this year, where more than 700 software development leaders from industry, academia, and government converged on the forefront of heterogeneous computing. The summit offers an engaging opportunity to learn more about next-generation software development and Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) technology, central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) processor technologies, and programming methods using industry-standard application programming interfaces (APIs) such as OpenCL™, OpenGL™, Microsoft DirectCompute and C++ AMP.
AMD Fusion 11 by the Numbers
Approximately 700 attendees were present at AMD Fusion ’11 where Microsoft first announced C++ AMP. Attendees engaged in industry keynotes, interactive technical sessions, pre-summit tutorials and hands-on labs to explore advanced parallel processing programmability and tools. The results from a post-event survey reinforced this focus with more than 80 percent of respondents saying they attended to learn about the latest advances and trends in heterogeneous computing. Moreover, when choosing an application programming interface for parallel processing, 75 percent of attendees reported that they either are deploying OpenCL now, or plan to do so in their future software development.1 AMD Fusion ’11 featured keynotes from Microsoft, ARM and Corel, as well as AMD. Additionally, there were many technical sessions and presentations about a range of topics including developer tools, enterprise computing, security, professional graphics and visual computing, and a roundtable discussion addressing “Why Industry Standards Foster Innovation.”
