Hi All,

Based on some of the posts I have seen over the year, I thought this  
might be of interest to some of you.

MIT will be holding some computing / network short courses on campus  
this summer, maybe of particular interest to you all are:

Multicore Programming
July 14-18, 2008

The course exposes students to fundamental issues in the design of  
concurrent programs and to the techniques necessary to make effective  
use of multicore machines. It combines lectures and classwork to  
gradually enhance students' intuition and technique.

And maybe...

Introduction to Network Coding
August 4-8, 2008

Network coding is a new area of networking, in which data is  
manipulated inside the network to increase throughput, reduce delay,  
and improve robustness. This field has recently found commerical  
applications in content distribution, peer-to-peer design, and  
enabling high-throughput wireless networks. The goal of this class is  
to provide participants with the theoretical and practical tools  
necessary not only to understand the field of network coding, but  
also to conduct independent, innovative work in the area. The  
curriculum reflects this mixture of theoretical foundations and  
practical approaches.
