The annual Concurrent Collections (CnC) workshop is as a forum for researchers and developers of parallel programs to interact on a variety of issues related to next-generation parallel programming models. The focus is on fostering a community around the CnC programming model; however, we also strongly encourage participation by anyone with an interest programming models inspired by dataflow and/or tuple space ideas as well as current or emerging applications of such models.


There will be a $25 registration fee. Please register at the LCPC'11 website.


The workshop will be held at the Lory Student Center on the CSU campus, in the Cherokee Park Ballroom (Room 236D, Upper Level).

Background on CnC

CnC is a parallel programming model for mainstream programmers that differs from other approaches in its philosophy. A CnC programmer doesn't specify parallel operations; instead, he/she only specifies semantic ordering constraints. This provides a separation of concerns between the domain expert and the tuning expert, simplifying the job of the domain expert while providing more flexibility to the tuning expert. Details on CnC and related research can be found at:
Prior workshops have served as a forum for users and potential users of Concurrent Collections (CnC), to discuss experiences with CnC and a range of topics, including developments for the language, applications, usability, performance, semantics, and teaching of CnC.
