Hans will give a high level overview of the threads API, atomic operations, and the basic  memory model.

Hans Boehm is the primary author of a widely used multithreaded garbage collector library. He was HPs representative to the effort to repair the Java "memory model", and has driven the effort to extend the C++ standard with clean semantics for threads, and particularly shared variable accesses.

He holds a Ph.D. from Cornell University. He is a past Chair of ACM SIGPLAN, and of the POPL, ISMM and VEE research symposia. He won the 2003 PLDI most influential paper award, and the 2006 SIGPLAN Distinguished Service Award. He works for HP Laboratories.
