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.

Resilient Software for ExaScale Computing

SESSION: Resilient Software for ExaScale Computing

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Marie-Christine Sawley, Roel Wuyts


ExaScale computing systems will likely consist of millions of cores executing applications with billions of threads, based on 14nm or less CMOS technology, according to the ITRS roadmap. Processing elements built on this technology, coupled with dynamic power management will exhibit high variability in performance, between cores and across different runs. Even worse, preliminary figures indicates that on average about every couple of minutes –at least- something in the system will break. Traditional checkpointing strategies are unlikely to work, given the time it will take to save the huge quantities of data combined with the fact that they will need to be restored frequently. This BoF wants to investigate resilient software: software that is able to survive failing hardware and continue to run, without minimal performance impact. Furthermore, we may also discuss tradeoffs between rerunning the application and the cost of instrumentation to deal with resilience.
