Would you like to test your parallel programming skills? Then you might participate in the Intel Threading Challenge 2010 and demonstrate your skills in one of two levels of participation.
- Apprentice level gives programmers new to multithreading and parallelism.
- Master level targets developers with multithreading experience.
Problem 1 of the 1st phase in Apprentice level asks to write a multithreaded program that determines the connected components in a graph. For Master level problem 1 requires to compute the so-called Hosoya index Z that is the number of sets of nonadjacent bonds in a molecule. You will have to submit your solution of the 1st problem until June 21, 2010 at 12:00 PM (Pacific Daylight Time).
Intel sponsors various prices ranging from $25.00 (U.S. Dollar) Visa Gift Cards to a Laptop (valued at approximately $600.00 US dollars). For more about the entry requirements and scoring details, see the main contest page.
