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.

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, both past and present, represented are:

  • NSF: Blue Waters (with Thomas Dunning, Marc Snir, Wen-Mei Hwu)
  • NSF: CSR-SMA: BigSim
  • NIH: Parallel Scalable Molecular Dynamics: NAMD (with Klaus Schulten)
  • IACAT: Synergistic Research on Parallel Programming for Petascale Applications (with Duane Johnson)
  • NSF: Simplifying Parallel Programming for CSE Applications using a Multi-Paradigm Approach (with David Padua, Vikram Adve)
  • NASA: Terascale Impostors (with Tom Quinn, Orion Lawlor)
  • DOE: Atomistic Modeling Tools (with Glenn Martyna, Mark Tuckerman, Jack Dongarra, Klaus Schulten)
  • NSF: Computational Cosmology (with Thomas Quinn, Orion Lawlor)
  • DOE: Rocket Simulations (CSAR, director: Michael Heath)
  • DOE: OS Services and Interfaces for Large Systems (with Terry Jones, Jose Moreira)

Sponsored in part by IACAT project.
