Title: Accelerating Applications: The Enduring Goal of Exploiting Parallelism in HPC Technical Software


Presenter:
Ted Clee,  President - TEC Applications Analysis 


Abstract:

Whether we seek nearly-interactive turnaround for compute-bound calculations on large data volumes, or we are trying to accomplish a previously intractable computation on a multimillion dollar system in a matter of mere weeks, HPC application developers are always trying to harness the power of the latest advanced computational hardware. Organizations with deep pockets are able to address the most challenging problems by deploying an army of software developers to rework complex algorithms whenever a new generation of hardware architecture becomes available. For smaller, workstation-based applications, this level of effort is not justifiable. We are recently seeing higher-level program constructs that enable developers to implement parallel computation on multiprocessor systems or with attached accelerators, with the expectation of expending less programming effort and still creating codes that can be moved to new hardware architectures without complete redesign.
