Overview about Intel® Software Development tools such as Intel® Parallel Studio XE and Intel® Cluster Studio XE. For developers not familiar with those suites, all components are briefly explained. For developers already working with some of the tools we also list the latest key features.

Die beiden Stuttgarter Max-Planck-Institute, das MPI für Festkörperforschung und das MPI für Intelligente Systeme, veranstalten einen gemeinsamen Tag der offenen Tür auf dem Max-Planck-Campus in Stuttgart-Büsnau. Die Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter bieten mit über 40 thematischen Stationen einen Einblick in ihre täglichen Aktivitäten. Interessierte Besucher können das breite Spektrum an Forschungsthemen der Stuttgarter Institute kennenlernen und Naturwissenschaften spannend erleben. Es gibt Spitzenforschung zum Anfassen!Weitere Informationen finden Sie hier.
