Application Grand Challenges in the Heterogeneous Accelerator Era

SESSION: Application Grand Challenges in the Heterogeneous Accelerator Era

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Pavan Balaji, Satoshi Matsuoka


Accelerators have recently gained prominence as the next disruptive technology with a potential to provide a non-incremental jump in performance. However, the number of applications that have actually moved to these technologies is still limited. This is because of many reasons, arguably the biggest of which is the gap in understanding between accelerator hardware developers (what features are available and upcoming) and application developers (what applications need). This BoF session aims to provide a unique opportunity to fill this gap. It will be organized as a debate-and-discuss session between two camps. In the first camp, application developers from different domains would be asked to describe their requirements and point out the challenges they are facing with current accelerator technologies. In the second camp, a panel of accelerator hardware/software developers would then be on the "hot-seat" to address these concerns, from the application developers and the audience, and give appropriate suggestions.
