This year, the Charm++ Workshop is aimed both at taking stock of the collaborative interdisciplinary research projects in which the Parallel Programming Laboratory (the developers of Charm++ and AMPI) participates, and exploring on-going and developing research areas which employ the primary tools provided by PPL. To this end, there will be the usual tutorials and invited talks, as well as paper presentations in answer to our first-time Call-for-Papers for this workshop. If you are working with Charm++ or any of the other tools provided by PPL, please have a look at our CFP.

In addition to the computer scientists at PPL, the collaborators represented at this workshop include those from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (CS, ME, TAM, MS, Physics, Beckman), University of Washington - Seattle, Princeton University, NYU, IBM and Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC).

The interdisciplinary projects represented are:

  • NIH: Parallel Scalable Molecular Dynamics: NAMD (With Klaus Schulten, Bob Skeel)
  • DOE: Rocket Simulation (CSAR, director: Michael Heath)
  • NSF: Material Simulation (CPSD: with Robert Haber, Jonathan Dantzig, Duane Johnson)
  • NSF: Computational Cosmology Simulations (With Tom Quinn)
  • NASA: Scalable Visualizations for Computational Cosmology (With Tom Quinn)
  • NSF: Quantum Mechanical and classical modeling (QM/MM) (Roberto Car, Mike Klein, Josep Toerrellas, Glenn Martyna, Mark Tuckerman, Nick Nystrom)
  • NSF: Programming Environments for Blue Gene Supercomputer and Applications (with S. Adve, D. Padua, P. Geubelle)

Please consider joining us this year for an in-depth look at Charm++, AMPI and much more!
