Sony Toshiba IBM Center of Competence for the Cell Processor

The Sony Toshiba IBM Center of Competence for the Cell Processor is the first Center of Competence dedicated to the promotion and development of College of Computing and is headed by David A. Bader.[1][2][3][4]

According to IBM, the center is intended "to build a community of programmers and broaden industry support for the Cell BE processor."[5] So far, the program has resulted in two workshops that involved detailed lectures on and training with various basic cell programming concepts, and has deployed a cluster of 28 IBM BladeCenter QS20 Servers (14 blades) for student and faculty use.[6][7]
