SESSION: OpenMP at the Frontiers of Parallelization
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Larry Meadows, Bronis de Supinski, Nawal Copty
ABSTRACT: 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, will be released soon. 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. You will also have the chance to participate in a lively panel discussion about where OpenMP needs to evolve and what future directions it should take. Ample time will be allowed for attendee participation and questions.
