SC is the International Conference for
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.

High-Level, One-Sided Programming Models on MPI: A Case Study with Global Arrays and NWChem

SESSION: Research Poster Reception

ROOM:WSCC North Galleria 2nd/3rd Floors

Global Arrays (GA) is popular high-level parallel programming model that provides data and computation management facilities to the NWChem computational chemistry suite. GA's global-view data model is supported by the ARMCI partitioned global address space runtime system, which traditionally is implemented natively on each supported platform in order to provide the best performance. The industry standard Message Passing Interface (MPI) also provides one-sided functionality and is available on virtually every supercomputing system. We present the first high-performance, portable implementation of ARMCI using MPI one-sided communication. We interface the existing GA infrastructure with ARMCI-MPI and demonstrate that this approach reduces the amount of resources consumed by the runtime system, provides comparable performance, and enhances portability for applications like NWChem.
