Superscalar Programming Models: Making Applications Platform Agnostic

SESSION: Invited Talks - Rosa M. Badia, Dave Wecker

EVENT TYPE: Invited Talks

EVENT TAG(S): Programming Systems, Workflows, Clouds and Distributed Computing, Heterogeneous Systems

TIME: 3:30PM - 4:15PM


Presenter(s):Rosa M. Badia

ROOM:Ballroom D


Programming models play a key role providing abstractions of the underlying architecture and systems to the application developer and enabling the exploitation of the computing resources possibilities from a suitable programming interface. When considering complex systems with aspects such as large scale, distribution, heterogeneity, variability, etc, it is indeed more important to offer programming paradigms that simplify the life of the programmers while still providing competitive performance results.

StarSs (Star superscalar) is a task-based family of programming models that is based on the idea of writing sequential code which is executed in parallel at runtime taking into account the data dependences between tasks. The talk will describe the evolution of this programming model and the different challenges that have been addressed in order to consider different underlying platforms from heterogeneous platforms used in HPC to distributed environments, such as federated clouds and mobile systems.
