Using HPX on Windows

HPX is a C++ Standard Library for Parallelism and Concurrency. Building and using it on Windows just got much less involved. We have now integrated HPX into the VcPkg VC++ Packaging Tool.

GSoC 2017 Participants Announced!

We can now announce the participants in the STE||AR Group’s 2017 Google Summer of Code! We are very proud to announce the names of those 6 students who this year will be funded by Google to work on projects for our group.

These recipients represent only a handful of the many excellent proposals that we had to choose from. For those unfamiliar with the program, the Google Summer of Code brings together ambitious students from around the world with open source developers by giving each mentoring organization funds to hire a set number of participants. Students then write proposals, which they submit to a mentoring organization, in hopes of having their work funded.
