Introducing the oneAPI Community Forum

The oneAPI initiative facilitates publishing the oneAPI specification, a set of defined programming interfaces for writing software for accelerators such as GPUs. Multiple versions of this specification were released and regular technical discussions are facilitated through technical advisory boards.

This session presents the next step for this effort: a community forum for accelerated computing. The new structure and open governance enables organizations and individuals to collaborate on defining an open and standards-based programming model for accelerated computing.
