SYCLcon is where the industry’s leading experts gather to support the SYCL standard for C++ programming of heterogeneous platforms and its ecosystem. The conference offers an opportunity for the community to come together to present, discuss and learn all aspects of using SYCL, from integration and performance to its programmability benefits. The presentations will cover a range of topics including research, reference implementations, supporting libraries, frameworks and general application development.
SYCLcon is an integral part of IWOCL and builds on the success of the previous DHPCC++ workshops.

SYCL is a royalty-free, cross-platform abstraction layer that builds on the underlying concepts, portability and efficiency of OpenCL that enables code for heterogeneous processors to be written in a “single-source” style using completely standard C++. SYCL enables single source development where C++ template functions can contain both host and device code to construct complex algorithms that use OpenCL acceleration, and then reuse them throughout their source code on different types of data. While originally developed for use with OpenCL and SPIR, it is actually a more general heterogeneous framework able to target other systems. For example, the hipSYCL implementation targets CUDA and AMD HIP.
