Subject: [Boost-announce] BoostCon 2010 preliminary program
From: Hartmut Kaiser (hartmut.kaiser_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-02-01 14:17:17

Hey all,

please find below a list of accepted submissions to BoostCon 2010. A
tentative, fully scheduled program will be available soon.

The keynote will be held by Maurice Herlihy. Maurice Herlihy is a computer
scientist active in the field of multiprocessor synchronization. Herlihy has
contributed to the design of concurrent algorithms, and in particular to the
exposition and quantification of the properties and uses of hardware
synchronization operations. He is currently (2009) a professor of computer
science at Brown University and one of the leading visionaries in the field
of transactional memory.

Following up on this keynote we will have a full day sessions and panel
discussion where we plan for 4 different groups to talk about their work on
transactional memory (Mark Moir (Sun), Tatiana Shpeisman (Intel), Michael
Wong (IBM), Vicente Botet (TBoost.STM))

In addition we have a high quality, distinctive, fully packed, and very
diverse list of accepted talks:
