OpenMP BOF: OpenMP is Twenty. Where is it Going?

  • Wednesday, 15 November, 2017 | 5:15pm – 6:45pm | Location: 205-207
  • Listing on SC17 website
  • Session Leaders: Jim Cownie (Intel) and Dr. Michael Klemm (CEO OpenMP ARB / Intel)
  • Objectives:
    • Educate existing and potential users of OpenMP about modern OpenMP and its evolution
    • Gather feedback from the audience about where they want OpenMP to go
    • Provide a forum for OpenMP users to ask questions of the OpenMP experts who drive the standard
  • Abstract:
    • The BOF will start with a short introduction from Bronis de Supinski, the chair of the OpenMP language committee outlining the major new features planned for OpenMP 5.0. This will be followed by a series of short presentations by other experts from the language committee covering specific topics of interest and will be concluded by Michael Klemm, the OpenMP CEO, who will present the groups vision that drives OpenMP development. The majority of the remaining time (75%) will be open to audience questions to the panel of OpenMP experts.

Exhibitor Forum

  • Tuesday, 14 November, 2017 | 2:00pm – 2:30pm | Location: 503-504 | SC17 Link
  • Presented by Michael Klemm
  • OpenMP: Enabling HPC for Twenty Years
  • This presentation reviews the history of OpenMP, the current features and provides an outlook for the upcoming OpenMP API specification, 5.0 Beta, which will be released during SC17.  OpenMP is twenty this year. Since its inauguration in 1997, it has become the standard programming model for multi-threading in HPC applications and drove many scientific discoveries by helping domain scientists implement their simulation codes. The OpenMP API is based on directives to augment code written in C/C++ and Fortran with parallelization hints to the compiler.  In its 20 years of existence, OpenMP has evolved from a purely multi-threaded model to a programming model that supports modern task-based programming as well heterogeneous programming for offload devices such as GPUs. With it’s extensions it also supports data-parallel programming for single-instruction multiple-data architectures.
