These are informal sessions in which a group of researchers can gather for discussions on a topic of mutual interest. BOF space will be available early in the evening and a typical BOF session will last one to two hours. We'll provide the space, you provide the topic and gather the people.
Please reserve space in advance by contacting the General Vice Chair Charles Weems (firstname.lastname@example.org). Reservations should be made by January 16, 2006. BOF sessions will be advertised in advance of the meeting on the IPDPS web site and can be linked to a BOF announcement web page.
The goal of the BOF sessions is to encourage new collaborations and research directions, to inspire educational initiatives, and to nurture the development of new workshop proposals and other initiatives and interactions within our community.

Massively Parallel Processing on a Chip
Wednesday, April 26, 6 to 8 PM
With multi-core chips already entering the market, it is foreseeable that chips with a large number of processing cores will emerge in response to the demand for extremely high performance in mobile and embedded devices, and in response to the convergence of communication-, media and compute devices. It is our contention that a workshop for discussing and presenting ideas on hardware, architecture, software and programmability, and applications of such highly parallel multi-core architectures is timely and could be very productive for the coming years. Thus, we would like to take the opportunity to see whether there is interest in organizing such a workshop with next years IPDPS.
