Date: Wednesday, November 19, 2014, 05:30 PM - 07:00 PM

Room: 275-76-77

Description: OpenACC API for accelerated systems has been earning praise for leadership in directives programming models and early implementations, and concerns from those looking for a single unified code for all system architectures. OpenACC SC13 BoF saw the OpenACC 2.0 announcement, received valuable input from the user community that helped us drive improvements to the specification and implementation. In this BoF, we will examine key user questions, encourage dialog between developers and implementers, discuss the current + future status of the specification, help developers contrast several existing accelerator programming solutions, highlighting the choices for given science domains, among other topics.
