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.

Connecting PGAS and traditional HPC languages

SESSION: Research Poster Reception

EVENT TYPE: ACM Student Research Competition Poster, Poster, Electronic Poster

TIME: 5:15PM - 7:00PM


AUTHOR(S):Adrian Prantl, Thomas Epperly, Shams Imam

ROOM:WSCC North Galleria 2nd/3rd Floors

Chapel is a high-level parallel programming language that implements a partitioned global address space model (PGAS). On our poster, we will present BRAID, which enables Chapel programs to call functions and instantiate objects written in C, C++, Fortran 77 - 2008, Java and Python. Our tool creates language bindings that are binary-compatible with Babel. The scientific community maintains a large amount of code written in traditional languages. With the help of our tool, users will gain access to their existing codebase with minimal effort. The language bindings are designed to provide a good combination of performance and flexibility (including transparent access to distributed arrays). The advantages of our approach are highlighted by benchmarks that compare the performance of pure Chapel programs with that of hybrid versions that call subroutines implemented in Babel-supported languages inside of parallel loops. We also present our vision for interoperability with other PGAS languages such as UPC and X10.
