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.

A Portable Implementation of the Integral Histogram in StarSs

Parallel programming models converge on key concepts. Program syntax avoids explicitly parallel constructs like threads and data dependence guides the computation, as opposed to resource-centric models like MPI or OpenMP. Aside from StarSs, StarPU and recently the MAGMA and PLASMA projects encapsulate computation on data blocks in tasks. These are scheduled dynamically via a TDG. We intent to demonstrate the use of StarSs in the development of the Integral Histogram (IH) and analyze the application on SMP, Cell/B.E. and GPU. As opposed to the applications for StarPU, MAGMA and PLASMA, which so far have been limited to numerical linear algebra kernels. IH is a recently proposed preprocessing technique that constructs the histogram for rectangular regions in constant time (for e.g. object recognition, content-based image retrieval, segmentation, detection and tracking). To the best of our knowledge, IH in StarSs is the first parallel implementation of this algorithm in the literature.
