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.
Runtimes and Applications for Extreme-Scale Computing
SESSION: Programming & Environments I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 11:00AM - 11:30AM
ABSTRACT: Future-generation HPC systems comprising many-core sockets and GPU accelerators will impose increasing challenges in programming, efficiency, heterogeneity and scalability for extreme-scale computing.
Emerging execution models using event-driven, task-based parallelism; dynamic dependency and constraint analysis; locality-aware computation; and resource-aware scheduling show promise in addressing these challenges and meeting the needs of the future of supercomputing. Applications utilizing these innovative runtime systems have shown significant gains in performance and utilization of computational resources over conventional methodologies. On the Graph 500 challenge, for example, SWARM (SWift Adaptive Runtime Machine) technology has shown 2-10x speed-up over MPI implementations and has demonstrated the highest per-node performance over all multi-node runtime systems. This presentation will articulate the challenges that extreme-scale systems pose and highlight some of the solutions to these problems, including new programming models that allow developers to express concurrency, locality, and synchronization in a concise manner.
