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.

The Path Forward on Programming Models, is there one?

SESSION: The Path Forward on Programming Models, is there one?


TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Ricky Kendall

Panelists:Ricky Kendall, Rusty Lusk, John Levesque, Barbara Chapman, Michael Wolfe, Robert Harrison


We are at an architectural sea change in high performance computing. The Road Runner system over 2 years ago became the fastest computer in the world, the first hybrid system at the top of the TOP 500 list. The current leader is also a hybrid system, the Chinese Tianhe-1A system at the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin at 2.57 Petaflops. The community as a whole will have to learn how to program and adapt science applications to these hybrid systems. This will need to be done in such a way that the overall modifications outlive these current machines and are easily adaptable to future architectures including the Exascale and beyond. What is the right programming model to use in our applications to not only enable this transformation in architecture but to facilitate portable performance? This panel will demonstrate options and opinions and open a dialog on this very important issue.
