IEEE Parallel Computing Workshop


5 day Real-time and Parallel Computing workshop:  21st August- 24 August 2017

Introduction to Operating Systems principles, Real-time concepts and programming in multi-process environment for non-computer scientists  

By the end of this workshop the participants will learn about:

  • Concurrency: processes vs. threads
  • Inter process communication: data pools, pipe-lines and message queues
  • Synchronization principles: mutexes and semaphores, critical sections and monitors
  • Deadlock and Starvation: detections and solutions
  • Operating System Scheduling: interrupts, priorities and Rate Monotonic Scheduling

The topics will be presented via examples and discussions. The afternoon sessions will have hands on tutorials with exercises to practice the concepts discussed.

Prerequisites: knowledge C++ is helpful for the tutorials.

Venue: Software Systems Center, Block B, College of Computing & IT, Makerere University
