*any::thing you wanted to know about std::any*
What is std::any and how it is built

*Amir Kirsh*
C++ Practitioner and lecturer at the Academic College of Tel-Aviv-Yaffo and Tel-Aviv University.

*The Concepts Behind CUDA Optimization*
In this session we will start looking inside the device. Study how it works and how its components running together. We will present the CUDA terminology, especially focusing on eligible/stalled/selected warps, warp divergence, warp schedulers, warp latency, hiding latency mechanism, occupancy, global memory coalesced access, shared memory bank conflict and how shall we use all this knowledge to maximize the device utilization.

*Zafrir Patt*
I graduated (B.Sc) in Mathematics & Physics and M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I was working seven and a half years at Biosense Webster as 3D software team leader, developing OpenGl graphics, 3D model of the heart and tools for ventricular arrhythmia treatment.
In the last five years I am the software architect at VOLCANO-PHILIPS, designing and implementing C++ Modules, developing generic CUDA library used for various algorithms and focusing on optimization of the CPU & GPU code.

*HFT & Low Latency Code*
This talk will present the various challenges we face in the HFT world.
We will cover the basic trading dynamics and mechanism and understand why latency matters. We will explore how we use the C++ language in order to achieve minimum latency.
