Asynchronous Many-­Task Programming Models for Next Generation Platforms

SESSION: Asynchronous Many-­Task Programming Models for Next Generation Platforms


EVENT TAG(S): Performance, Applications, Programming Systems, HPC Futures and Exascale

TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

Panelists:Robert Clay, Alex Aiken, Martin Berzins, Matthew Bettencourt, Laxmikant Kale, Timothy Mattson, Lawrence Rauchwerger, Vivek Sarkar, Thomas Sterling, Jeremiah Wilke



Next generation platform architectures will require us to fundamentally rethink our programming models and environments due to a combination of factors including extreme parallelism, data locality issues, and resilience. As seen in the computational sciences community, asynchronous many-task (AMT) programming models and runtime systems are emerging as a leading new paradigm. While there are some overarching similarities between existing AMT systems, the community lacks consistent 1) terminology to describe runtime components, 2) application- and component-level interfaces, and 3) requirements for the lower level runtime and system software stacks. This panel will engage a group of community experts in a lively discussion on status and ideas to establish best practices in light of requirements such as performance portability, scalability, resilience, and interoperability. Additionally, we will consider the challenges of user-adoption, with a focus on the issue of productivity, which is critical given the application code rewrite required to adopt this approach.
