Reflections on SC13 and OpenMP

Michael Wong, CEO of OpenMP ARB, reflects on Supercomputing 13 and recent OpenMP advances: I attended Supercomputing in my third year as OpenMP CEO to both represent IBM and OpenMP. This was a big year for us as we closed with many milestones in what I call a Significant Paradigm shift in Parallelism. The most significant milestone was that the OpenMP Consortium has released OpenMP 4.0 in 2013 with new parallelism features that are productive, portable, and performant across C, C++, and Fortran. OpenMP 4.0 contains significant additions for accelerators, standardized for a broad set of architectures, and an industry-first support for SIMD vectorization. It was being showcased at SC13. The OpenMP ARB Consortium now has 26 members and is still growing, adding three new members in the last year: Red Hat/GCC Barcelona SuperComputing Centre University of Houston Coming implementations of OpenMP 4.0 include GNU, and the Intel 13.1 compiler with support for accelerators. Clang has started with support with OpenMP 3.1. […]
