SC20 was packed with OpenMP events, including talks, tutorials, the OpenMP booth talks (videos now available), and more ...
ECP SOLLVE, in conjunction with ORNL and NERSC, organised two OpenMP Hackathons to help teams use OpenMP to port and optimize their applications on GPUs, and in using OpenMP for energy-efficient processor architectures.
Speeding up drug discovery is urgently required and researchers around the world are using AutoDock 4.2 to identify novel drug candidates against COVID-19. This use case shows that the OpenMP API provides a useful and stable environment for node-level parallelization of AutoDock 4.2.
The OpenMP hackathon held at Brookhaven National Laboratory involved eight application teams from US national labs and universities working to fully leverage pre-Exascale systems using the latest OpenMP features. The event was sponsored by the Exascale Computing Project (ECP), the OpenMP ARB, cOMPunity and the SOLLVE team.
ECP SOLLVE, in conjunction with ORNL and NERSC, are organizing two OpenMP Hackathons in July and August. We encourage participation of teams interested in using OpenMP to port and optimize their applications on GPUs, and in using OpenMP for energy-efficient processor architectures.
The OpenMP 5.0 specification is now available as a softcover book on Amazon. Authored by the OpenMP Architecture Review Board and edited by Michael Klemm and Bronis R. Supinski. ISBN-13: 978-1795759885

We held an OpenMP BoF “OpenMP 5.0 is Nearly Here -- Find out All About It!” at the ISC2018 event in Frankfurt on Tuesday June 26th. There were over 80 attendees, filling the available space in the room. A summary of the session and presentations are now available online.
This Technical Report is the public comment draft for the OpenMP Application Programming Specification version 5.0 that augments the OpenMP API Specification version 4.5 with support for C11, C++14/17, and Fortran 2008, for concurrent loops, improved worksharing constructs, task reductions, runtime interfaces for first-party (OMPT) and for third-party tools (OMPD), major extensions to the device constructs, memory allocation features, improved task dependencies, and several clarifications and corrections.
