Welcome to the Educational Alliance for a Parallel Future
The Educational Alliance for a Parallel Future, EAPF.org, is dedicated to establishing parallelism as a core competency within computer and computational science education and practice.
Our Mission as an educational organization is to foster an ecosystem-wide transition in computing curricula. Through the alignment of academia, industry players, research, government, and educational associations, the EAPF will focus on providing leadership within the ecosystem to drive consensus on a standard definition around the elements of parallelism, as it relates to programming, as well as prioritizing curricula changes, while providing the basic resources to help educators determine how best to integrate new concepts without losing course integrity.
- Facilitate the alignment of academia, industry, government and educational associations on the need for the inclusion of parallel programming topics in computer and computational science curricula.
- Act as a bridge between associations and educators to ease and speed the technology transfer from research to education
- Guide and foster a community of practice in parallel computing education allowing for expedited peer to peer sharing of materials and experiences.
