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.
New Developments in the Global Arrays Programming Model
SESSION: New Developments in the Global Arrays Programming Model
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Bruce Palmer, Abhinav Vishnu
ABSTRACT: The purpose of this BOF is to obtain input from the Global Array user community on proposed development of the GA toolkit. The main focus will be on extending the GA programming model to post-petascale architectures but other topics, including the addition of desirable features relevant for programming on existing platforms will also be entertained. The discussion will focus on addressing bottlenecks to scalability, including fault tolerance, data consistency in one-sided communication models, and flexible distributed data structures. The session format will be geared towards informal discussion and will invite extensive input from session attendees. The session leaders will provide a brief overview of the GA programming model and then discuss issues associated with extending the GA programming model to the next generation of computers and current plans to deal with them. The session will then be opened up for discussion and comments by session participants.
