Parallel processing has a revival

Interest in parallel processing is being revived by developments in related fields, which are taking it more into commercial applications, according to the relaunched BCS Parallel Processing Specialist Group.

One of these developments, grid computing, will be discussed by users and suppliers at the group's relaunch meeting.

Speakers from companies such as Intel and Oracle and users including HSBC and Schlumberger will feature at the all-day event in London on 27 October.

"The evolution of parallel computing technology has reached a tipping point which will affect the whole industry," said the group's acting chairman Tom Lake.

"We have dual and quad multicore processors appearing. Corba and grid technologies have moved concurrent and co-operative computing into commercial applications."
