About PPL/Charm++ at SC17


The Parallel Programming Laboratory (PPL) at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is a research group that has been creating innovative solutions in HPC for over 25 years. Adaptive runtime systems is the core research focus of PPL. The research results are embodied in the Charm++ parallel programming system and the Adaptive MPI library, which have been used to develop many highly scalable applications, including NAMD (biophysics), OpenAtom (materials), ChaNGa (astronomy), EpiSimdemics (simulation of contagion spread), etc.

Charm++ is a strong contender for an exascale programming model, with all the adaptive features built into Charm++, including dynamic load balancing, power/energy/temperature management, and resilience.

PPL will host a Birds-of-a-Feather Session on "Charm++ and AMPI: Adaptive and Asynchronous Parallel Programming." This is an ideal opportunity to learn more about how Charm++ is used in practice, see how it's growing, and influence its future direction. The session will take place from 12:15PM – 1:15PM on Thursday, November 16th.

Many PPL members will be in attendance at the conference. We look forward to an exciting week at SC17.
