What's it All About

Multicore World: a think tank to answer Big Questions, together!

Interactive and Targeted

At Multicore World conversations are as important as sessions. Every presentation has a flexible Q&A period, and if we are enjoying a great discussion, we just continue with it. On its 5th edition, Multicore World 2016 participants are invited as world experts in their speciality. In a limited audience environment you will find that the person sitting besides you has a wealth of experience similar to the speaker that both are listening to.

Industry Leading

Participants are from first tier companies, vendors and organisations. You will hear about trends and road maps that are not yet in the general domain. You can't substitute the experience of Multicore World's unique combination of sessions and conversations. Webinars and white papers present knowledge to be marketed: at Multicore World you will discuss with the creators -right when they are keen to test their novel concept in your field.


Multicore World is a destination conference -people do not "pass through", it is a decision to come to New Zealand. More than 40% of participants are from outside New Zealand and Australia. It is not unusual that some are crossing the Equator for the first time in their lives, to keynote at Multicore World. Authors do their book pre-launch presentation, entrepreneurs discuss deals with executives from major corporations, all in an informal environment far from media scrutiny and general gossip. Take advantage of the time commitment of global experts that are keen to learn from your work as well.


On its 5th edition, Multicore World is now consolidated in the international calendar. Every year since 2012, experts and leaders from all over the world converge in February to beautiful New Zealand for three full days of the most thought-provoking sessions in the latest high-technology evolution and its applications. Collocated with Multicore World 2016 (15-18 February) are a number of workshops including "HPC in the Cloud: the SKA example, OpenMP 4.0 overview, OpenStack and TOPS (The Open Parallel Stack).
