Intel have offered to contribute an implementation of the C++17 parallel algorithms to libstdc++ (GCC) and libc++ (Clang).

This talk will cover:
* brief introduction to C++17 parallel algorithms and execution policies
* overview of Intel's implementation
* considerations and changes necessary to integrate a substantial 3rd party contribution like this
into a standard library implementation.
* support for different execution back ends, tailored to the target platform
