WACCPD: Workshop on Accelerator Programming Using Directives

SESSION: WACCPD: Workshop on Accelerator Programming Using Directives

EVENT TYPE: Workshops

EVENT TAG(S): Programming Systems, SIGHPC Workshop, Accelerators

TIME: 9:00AM - 5:30PM

Organizer(s):Sunita Chandrasekaran, Fernanda Foertter

ROOM:Hilton 406


Directive-based programming models offer scientific applications a path on to HPC platforms without undue loss of portability or programmer productivity. Using directives, application developers can port their codes to the accelerators incrementally while minimizing code changes. Challenges remain because the directives models need to support a rapidly evolving array of hardware with diverse memory subsystems, which may or may not be unified. The programming model will need to adapt to such developments, make improvements to raise its performance portability that will make accelerators as first-class citizens for HPC. Such improvements are being continuously discussed within the standard committees such as OpenMP and OpenACC. This workshop aims to capture the assessment of the improved feature set, their implementations and experiences with their deployment in HPC applications. The workshop aims at bringing together the user and tools community to share their knowledge and experiences of using directives to program accelerators.

This workshop will produce a refereed proceedings that will be available through the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore (free of charge during and immediately after SC, and free after that to SIGHPC members).
