April 29th-30th in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois
Charm++ Tutorial on May 1st
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 Prof. Vivek Sarkar and Prof. Robert J. Harrison. In addition, there will be talks by many external speakers; information on these speakers will be added as the program is finalized. Following the workshop, a tutorial will be organized on May 1st.
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 2014 workshop will be held, April 29-30th.
