Multicore World is more than a yearly event, it is a global community, an ecosystem.

Every year we invite speakers well in advance who are very keen to participate, but later insurmountable calendar conflicts emerge and need to postpone their attendance. Therefore we are bringing together a list of potential speakers who expressed their interest and are considering to participate at Multicore World 2016.

It will be in the 3rd week of February 2016, in New Zealand.

The spirit of the list is to show the continuity of our project and provide an idea of the level for the next edition. If you wish to join us, contact
