Charm++/AMPI and the frameworks built upon them have emerged as powerful parallel programming systems in recent years. By allowing the programmer to divide the computation into a large number of entities which are mapped to the available processors by an intelligent runtime system, Charm++ enable a separation of concerns that leads to both improved productivity and higher performance. Powerful abstractions are available in the FEM, POSE, MSA, and Multiblock frameworks. Charm++ frameworks have enabled applications ranging from molecular dynamics, cosmology, network simulation, materials science, and rocket simulation.
The workshop will focus on showcasing leading research in parallel processing using Charm++ and its frameworks. Topics will include applications developed using the frameworks as well as advances in AMPI/Charm++ technology itself. Authors and attendees are encouraged to share their experiences with the systems built upon Charm++/AMPI as well as Charm++/AMPI itself. The workshop will be a forum for developers and users of Charm++ to interact closely.
The workshop is also aimed at taking stock of the funded collaborative interdisciplinary research projects involving the Charm++ system.
There will be several tutorials demonstrating the different features of Charm++. These tutorials will be presented by the Charm++ developers. Attendees are required to register for the tutorials. Following is the tentative list of tutorials:
Call For Papers
Authors are invited to submit short manuscripts that demonstrate research and development in all areas of parallel processing using Charm++ and AMPI. Submissions should be in the form of extended abstracts up to 3 pages formatted in standard IEEE format. The papers will not be published and the authors are encouraged to publish them in other conferences. Some of the topics of interest are:
Please send submissions to Eric Bohm by the deadline below.
