I have just been to a public lecture given by Ewald Nowotny at the London School of Economics about the Future Outlook for Eurozone Economy, although it was more of an overview of the current crisis than an outlook.

Mon Feb 13 00:16:30 2012 GMT: C++ Standards Committee Meeting in Kona, Hawaii

I have just returned from last week's ISO C++ Standards Committee Meeting in Kona, Hawaii. Of course, that's a very long journey from London, but at least I reached all my connections and none of my flights was cancelled (but when I boarded my plane from Kona to LA, they just announced that a flight to San Francisco had to be cancelled because of the brakes overheating on arrival).

Anyway, I guess the big news is that the committee is aiming to publish the next C++ standard in 2016/2017. Study groups for "concurrency and parallelism", "networking" and "filesystem library" have been created to focus on these specific areas. Concurrency is one of the areas that got a lot of attention at the meeting with one day spent in the Evolution/Concurrency Working Group for presentations of Intel's Cilk Plus, Microsoft's PPI (Parallel Patterns Library) and Transactional Language Constructions for C++.

Oh, and not everyone enjoyed the dinner cruise that much as the sea was a bit rough that day...
