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.
S06: Developing Scalable Parallel Applications in X10
SESSION: S06: Developing Scalable Parallel Applications in X10
EVENT TYPE: Tutorial
TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):David Cunningham, David Grove, Vijay Saraswat, Olivier Tardieu
ABSTRACT: This tutorial will cover the fundamental concepts of the Asynchronous PGAS (Partitioned Global Address Space) programming model and describe how the major novel features of the X10 programming language support productive development of concurrent and distributed applications. Examples and hands-on exercises will give participants first-hand experience at designing, implementing, and evaluating algorithms written in the APGAS style in the X10 programming language. The tutorial will include an overview and introduction to the X10 programming language, but will primarily focus on the effective use of X10 to develop scalable parallel applications. The usage of application frameworks such as the X10 array library, dynamic global load balancing framework, and distributed sparse matrix library will be highlighted. The compilation of X10 to CUDA for execution across a cluster of machines with attached GPGPUs will also be covered. In the hands-on sessions, participants will have the opportunity to either use command-line X10 tooling or to learn how to effectively use X10DT: a full-featured X10 IDE and debugger based on the Eclipse framework.
