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.

HPC Runtime System Software

SESSION: HPC Runtime System Software

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Rishi Khan, Thomas Sterling, Vivek Sarkar


Future extreme-scale systems may require aggressive runtime strategies to achieve both high efficiency and high scalability for continued performance advantage through Moore’s Law. Exploitation of runtime information will support dynamic adaptive techniques for superior resource management and task scheduling through introspection for better system utilization and scaling. This BoF brings together runtime system software developers, application programmers, and members of the broader HPC community to discuss the opportunities and challenges of using new runtime system software. This BoF considers how parallelism can be significantly increased, how latency of memory access and system resource access will be hidden, the ways in which critical path overheads may be minimized, and adaptive methods for avoiding hotspots and mitigating energy demands. Presentations will discuss how runtime systems can handle heterogeneity of architectures, memory/network subsystems, energy consumption, and continued execution in the presence of faults. Among systems discussed will be Habanero, ParalleX-HPX, Charm++, and SWARM.
