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.

Efficient Data Race Detection for Distributed Memory Parallel Programs

SESSION: Debugging


TIME: 4:00PM - 4:30PM

AUTHOR(S):Chang-Seo Park, Paul Hargrove, Costin Iancu, Koushik Sen


We present a precise data race detection technique for distributed memory programs. Our technique, called Active Testing, builds on our previous work on race detection for shared-memory Java/C programs, handles programs written using shared-memory approaches as well as bulk communication. Active testing works in two phases: phase1 performs a dynamic analysis of an execution of the program and finds potential data races that could happen if the program is executed with a different thread schedule. Phase2 re-executes the program by actively controlling the thread schedule to confirm data races reported in phase1. A key highlight of our technique is that it can scalably handle distributed programs with bulk communication and single- and split-phase barriers. We implement the framework for UPC and demonstrate scalability up to a thousand cores for both fine-grained and bulk MPI-style programs. The tool confirms previously known bugs and uncovers several unknown ones.
