CnC 2010, the second annual Concurrent Collections workshop, will be a full day workshop held on October 6, 2010, at Rice University, Houston, Texas.  It will be co-located with LCPC 2010 (  

The workshop will be a forum for users and potential users of Concurrent Collections (CnC), to discuss experiences with CnC and a range of topics, including future developments for the language, applications, usability, performance, semantics, and teaching of CnC.  

Concurrent Collections is a new parallel programming model for mainstream programmers that differs from other approaches in its philosophy.  The programmer doesn’t specify parallel operations;   instead, he/she only specifies semantic ordering constraints.  This provides a separation of concerns between the domain expert and the tuning expert, simplifying the job of the domain expert while providing more flexibility to the tuning expert.  Details on CnC and related research can be found at: 


The workshop agenda will include research presentations selected from submitted abstracts. See the call for abstracts at this web site. There will be open group discussions, including a panel session, on selected topics. Plenty of time will be left open for unstructured mixing, mingling, and networking.

There will be a small registration fee to cover the workshop lunch. 

Please contact the workshop chairs, Zoran Budimlić (  and Michael Burke (, if you have questions regarding this workshop.
