Workshop on programming models for exascale

22 Sep 2016
Open session at exascale programming models workshop - Manchester, 12th October

The European HPC projects INTERTWinE, EPiGRAM, EXA2CT and AllScale are holding a joint workshop on exascale applications. Although this is primarily a closed workshop, there will be an open session on exascale programming models, which anyone is welcome to attend.

The open session takes place at the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester, on Wednesday 12th October at 13:00.

The timetable is as follows:

13:00 Keynote Presentation: MPI+X on the way to exascale

Bill Gropp (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign)

As the time to the first Exascale system gets shorter, it is clear that MPI will be an important programming system for those Exascale systems. So we are happy to have Bill Gropp as keynote speaker. Dr. Gropp has played a major role in the development of the MPI message-passing standard. He is coauthor of MPICH, the most widely used implementation of MPI.

14:00 Panel discussion: Programming for Exascale: Complete disruption or slow evolution?

Bill Gropp (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign), Mark Bull (EPCC, University of Edinburgh - EPiGRAM and INTERTWinE projects), Thomas Fahringer (University of Innsbruck - AllScale project), Valeria Bartsch (Fraunhofer ITWM - EPiGRAM and INTERTWinE projects), Tom Vander Aa (IMEC - EXA2CT project)

Representatives of European Exascale projects who have undertaken extensive research in the field will discuss the future of programming models in the Exascale era.
