AMD Fusion '12 Comes Together Next June

Advanced Micro Devices, like Intel, doesn't let the years go by without building upon or starting new collaborations with software makers, so it is already thinking of a certain event that will occur next year.

Between June 11 and June 14, 2012, the annual Fusion gathering will take place at the Meydenbauer Center and the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue.

“As the only provider of world-class APUs, GPUs and CPUs, AMD is leading advancement of heterogeneous computing and OpenCL, both of which have reached a tipping point as demand grows for new user interfaces and immersive computing experiences,” said Manju Hegde, corporate vice president, AMD Fusion Experience Program.

“AMD has a history of customer-driven innovation based on industry standards and AMD Fusion ‘12 will be the ideal place for developers, academics and innovators to collaborate around that software innovation.”

Like at Fusion '11, Fusion '12 will see hundreds of experts from the academic, corporate and government sectors.

The event will focus on next-generation software development and the AMD Fusion System Architecture (FSA).

APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) in particular will get attention, along with CPU and GPU technologies, plus programming interfaces like OpenCL, OpenGL, DirectCompute, C++ AMP, etc.

The gathering should net new ideas for browsers, cloud computing, gaming, consumer electronics, multimedia processing, security, programming tools, languages and models and professional graphics/visual computing.

“AMD exceeded my expectations with their AMD Fusion Developer Summit this past June,” said Jon Peddie, principal and founder, Jon Peddie Research.

“I saw an open and instructive exchange of ideas on software development, tools and APIs, free from the marketing hype that you get at many conferences.”

February 17, 2012 is the deadline for proposal submission, after which they will be reviewed by a summit board (researchers, practitioners and academics). The selected candidates shall be revealed on March 15.
