OpenCL: the ultimate in portable parallel programming
SESSION: OpenCL: the ultimate in portable parallel programming
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Tim Mattson, Ben Gaster
ABSTRACT: Heterogeneous computing with CPUs, GPUs, and other processors has arrived. It seems everyone is experimenting with it. To move from “experimenting with” to “routine production computing platform” we need a rich software ecosystem. And that means we need a standard software platform so programmers can “write once to compile and run anywhere”. OpenCL is that standard.
In this BOF we will talk about what’s new with OpenCL. We will also have a panel of experts discuss controversial and engaging issues pertaining to OpenCL. But most importantly, we will engage with the attendees to answer questions, gather input for future development of OpenCL, and have a good time sharing experiences with this new programming model.
