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.
SESSION: PARALLEL: Shared Memory Parallel Programming using OpenMP
EVENT TYPE: Broader Engagement, Education
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Henry J. Neeman
Presenter(s):Charlie Peck, Thomas Murphy, Daniel Ernst, Henry Neeman
ABSTRACT: This session, presented jointly by the Broader Engagement and Education Programs, focuses on multithreaded parallelism. Topics include: the fork/join model; OpenMP compiler directives; hello world; parallel do/for; chunks; private vs. shared data; scheduling (static vs. dynamic vs. guided); synchronization; barriers; critical sections; race conditions explained via the analogy of "The Pen Games;" reductions; how to parallelize a serial code.
Assumed background: one semester of programming in any of C, C++ or Fortran, recently, one semester of experience with any Unix-like operating system (could be Linux but doesn't have to be), recently.
