Michael Wrinn
Manager, Innovative Software Education

Michael Wrinn Michael Wrinn manages Intel's Innovative Software Education team, which collaborates with universities to bring parallel computing to the mainstream of undergraduate education. He is in demand as a speaker, recently giving talks and workshops at Peking University, Berkeley and others; he was a keynote speaker at the SIGCSE 2010 (the ACM Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education), and will deliver a full-day tutorial at the SC10 (the International Conference for High Performance Computing). Wrinn serves as a member of the ACM Education Council, bringing industrial perspective to curriculum evolution, especially the impact of parallel computing. Prior Intel roles include managing Intel's software engineering lab in Shanghai, and directing research on human interface technology. He was Intel's representative for the original OpenMP specification, and remains active in the parallel computing community. Before joining Intel, Michael worked at Accelrys, implementing commercial and research simulation codes on a wide variety of parallel/HPC systems. He holds a B.Sc. and Ph.D. (in quantum mechanics) from McGill University.

Presentation Title Application Development on MeeGo: Rich and Enhanced User Experiences

In this session, an introduction is made for the software development on MeeGo™ Operating System. In addition to the history and architecture review of the OS, the major introduction is devoted to the basic development environment Qt, and the rich middleware/services it provides for the developers. Regarding the growing demand on UI design for various client devices, the best known practice and method to create enriched applications for different user experience form the session focus. And some suggestion will also be given, for advanced audience how to make a competitive software program on MeeGo™ OS for the newly released integrated Intel® Atom™ processors.

Presentation Title Intel Labs: Staying ahead of Technology

This talk will introduce the audience to the objectives and agenda of Intel Labs. The world-class research overview will be followed by deep dives into many high-impact projects that have received world-wide coverage among press, academia and industry. First, we will discuss the details of single-chip cloud computer and its impact on the software development eco system. This will be followed by many innovations in improving energy efficiency in computation and communication. The latter will cover high-speed electrical signaling as well as optoelectronic interconnect. The talk will conclude with a brief discussion of binary translation and its application to general-purpose energy-efficient computing.
