High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

SPEC HPG benchmarks for MPI & OpenMP, power, accelerators and much more.

SESSION: SPEC HPG benchmarks for MPI & OpenMP, power, accelerators and much more.

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Kalyan Kumaran, Matthias Müller


The High Performance Group of SPEC has a long history of creating industry standard leading edge benchmarks to compare HPC systems since its inception around 1995. Current existing benchmarks support multiple programming models including MPI and OpenMP and are based on real applications from various science domains (MPI2007 and OMP2001). These benchmarks come with run rules and metrics that allow fair and objective comparisons and with a peer review for publication of results on the SPEC website. The group is currently working on the release of a new suite based on OpenMP, that will serve as a replacement to its existing suite, and will include features from the latest OpenMP standard and support a power/performance metric. Details of this new benchmark, power metric, and a roadmap of future plans including an accelerator benchmark will be presented. SPEC HPG is a popular industry consortium comprising leading HPC companies and research labs.
