SESSION: OpenMP in the Petascale Era

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

DATE: Tuesday, 11/15, 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADERS: Barbara Chapman, Bronis de Supinski, Matthias Mueller


Since its inception in 1997, OpenMP has proven to be a simple, yet powerful model for developing multi-threaded applications. OpenMP continues to evolve, adapt to new requirements, and push at the frontiers of parallelization. A new Specification version 3.1, with enhancements and clarifications to the existing specification, has been released this year. Also, many new features are being discussed by the OpenMP language committee for inclusion in Specification version 4.0 that will follow. In this BOF session, you will have the opportunity to learn about the work of the OpenMP language committee and new features planned or explored. You will also have the chance to participate in a lively panel discussion about where OpenMP needs to evolve in order to best serve its growing user community. Ample time will be allowed for attendee participation and questions.
