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.
Programming weather, climate and earth-system models on heterogeneous multi-core platforms
SESSION: Programming weather, climate and earth-system models on heterogeneous multi-core platforms
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Ilene Carpenter, Mark Govett, Chris Kerr
ABSTRACT: Heterogeneous multi-core platforms provide a challenge for the applications used in the weather, climate and earth-system modeling community. These applications typically have relatively flat profiles, low use of optimized math libraries and a large community of developers. They have low computational intensity and require high memory bandwidth, however they have substantial parallelism and several models have been successfully ported to run on GPUs.
The purpose of the BOF is to report on the conclusions of a workshop titled “Programming weather, climate, and earth-system models on heterogeneous multi-core platforms” held September 7-8, 2011 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Session leaders will discuss the conclusions from the technical sessions of the workshop including: (1) Programming Environments (2) Programming Tools, (3) Portability. The BOF is also intended to foster the evolving community of modelers who are using or preparing to use heterogeneous multi-core platforms for their weather, climate and earth-system models.
