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.
DynLab - A Distributed Framework for Physics Computation
SESSION: Programming & Environments II
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 2:00PM - 2:30PM
ABSTRACT: Real-world physics simulation (as opposed to game physics) may require multiple computational tasks for each time step. Depending on the system, a simulation step may involve solving equations related to kinematics, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and stress/strain relationships. Each task requires significant processing resources, so traditional multithreaded computing won't be sufficient.
To perform these tasks in parallel, DynLab searches for connected OpenCL-compliant devices (including CPUs, GPUs, and APUs) and deploys one or more kernels to each device depending on its resources. This distributed physics engine not only processes simulation data at high speed but also rapidly transfers data between devices using OpenCL memory objects.
A key advantage of OpenCL is that kernels can interact with 3-D rendering based on OpenGL or Direct3D. DynLab combines OpenCL processing with OpenGL rendering to provide high-performance physics simulation and rendering of the simulated system.
