(BOF) Ubiquitous, Heterogeneous, Manycore Platforms: Challenges and Opportunities
SESSION: Technical Challenges and Opportunities
EVENT TYPE: Special Topic: Workforce Development, Communities
TIME: 11:15AM - 12:00PM
Panelists:Paul Steinberg, Matthew Wolf, Daniel Ernst, Benedict Gaster
ABSTRACT: We will discuss the kinds of training and retraining that will be necessary as parallel computing comes to terms with the rapid advancement of exascale computing hardware. The members of Educational Alliance for a Parallel Future (EAPF), drawn from a wide cross section of Industry, Academia and Research, will initiate BOF discussions on how to manage and plan for resources and innovations in this dynamic area.
A new open web portal, the Parallelism Tech Pack, hosted by ACM and curated by members of EAPF, intends to offer community engagement from beginning students to advanced professionals. We seek input and participation in how best to manage, update, and maintain the usability of this resource, as well as defining the gaps in our (collective) offerings.
