ABSTRACT:
The ACM/IEEE CS Curriculum 2013 report is expected to be available by the time of the SC13 conference. The IEEE/TCPP Curriculum Initiative on Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC) is also available. In both of these documents, PDC moves from being an elective into the core CS curriculum, meaning all CS students now need to learn about it. In this workshop, we will (i) provide an overview of the PDC topics that should now be in every CS departments core curriculum, (ii) explore different curricular approaches to covering these topics, (iii) present existing pedagogical and computational resources to aid CS educators in adding coverage of PDC to the core CS curriculum, and (iv) provide time for participants to brainstorm, discuss, and plan how they will incorporate these PDC topics into the core CS curriculum at their home institutions.
