Spatial to Explore Multi-threaded Application Development at Upcoming 3D Insiders’ Summit

Intel’s James Reinders to Deliver Keynote on Trends in Parallel Programming

Broomfield, CO, USA, Sept 4, 2008 — Spatial Corp., a leading provider of 3D software components for technical applications, is pleased to announce that conference registration is open for the 3D Insiders’ Summit, to be held on October 13-14th at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder, Colorado. The annual Summit enables the Spatial user and prospect community to gain in-depth knowledge of Spatial components and have direct exchange with Spatial developers and executive management team. This year’s Summit also provides an opportunity to learn about the latest industry advances in developing multi-threaded applications.

"This is my fourth year attending the 3D Insider's Summit. Running a development team, I do not always get the opportunity to drill down to the details. The Summit has served me really well, introducing new features in a very good and concentrated package and advice on how to implement them. Our time from learning about a new feature to the time it is available in our application decreased by one or two release cycles since I've started attending the Summit,” stated Mauritz Botha, CTO at IMSI/Design™. “Networking and access to the developers is fantastic and the advice that I get from these discussions alone makes the trip a permanent feature on my calendar.”

This year’s keynote speaker James Reinders, Chief Software Evangelist and Director for Intel Software Development Products, shares practical advice for the development of effective multi-threaded software applications. Mr. Reinders’ presentation, “Parallel or Perish!! - Are You Ready?” addresses the industry shift to multi-core hardware architectures and how software applications can best take advantage of this shift. Duncan McCallum, Chief Executive Officer of Cilk Arts, presents “Multicore-enabling C++ Applications” and the new programming skill sets required to address the challenges of multi-core architectures.

The 3D Insiders’ Summit provides Spatial users and guests with a unique opportunity to gain in-depth technical information on Spatial 3D software components and future product direction. Developer presented sessions provide details on what’s new in Spatial’s core software components including the 3D ACIS Modeler, 3D Interoperability, and 3D Visualization (HOOPS/3dAF) product lines. Presentations cover recently introduced application-specific components — 3D Springback and EDA 3D Analysis Suite, and provide an in-depth look at exchanging product manufacturing information (PMI) and use within applications. Spatial’s product development leadership outlines each product’s roadmap. New this year is the Developer’s Roundup, which provides attendees’ access to Spatial developers in an exhibit-like setting, complete with technical demonstrations.

The Summit is a great way to learn how to best utilize and implement Spatial’s 3D software components, to see what the future holds for Spatial’s products and the industry, and to network with industry colleagues.
