Workshop April 17-18 and Half-Day Tutorial April 19 Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, USA
Charm++ is a C++ based parallel programming system based on an introspective adaptive runtime system, with many features suitable for addressing upcoming extreme scale as well as mid-scale challenges, and with multiple highly scalable parallel applications such as NAMD. Our group's goal is to develop technology that improves performance of parallel applications while also improving programmer productivity. We aim to reach a point where, with our freely distributed software base, complex irregular and dynamic applications can (a) be developed quickly and (b) perform scalably on machines with thousands of processors. The workshop is broadly focused on adaptivity in highly scalable parallel computing. It also takes stock of recent results in adaptive runtime techniques in Charm++ and the collaborative interdisciplinary research projects developed using it.
The keynote speakers for this year's workshop are Dr. Rajeev Thakur, Director of Software Technology for the Exascale Computing Project and a Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory and Prof. Michael Norman, Director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), University of California San Diego. More details coming as the program is finalized. We invite you to join us. Registration details can be found at the link on the left. As usual, we will be doing a live webcast for all of the talks. So, if you cannot come here, join us online. The 2017 workshop will be held, April 17-18 with a half-day tutorial to follow on April 19.
