BOF: OpenMP API – Present and Future
The OpenMP API is among the most widely-used parallel programming models in HPC and is the oldest industry standard for parallel programming with compiler directives. As we have reached the era of exascale using GPU accelerated systems, the BOF will have a special focus on OpenMP accelerator programming for current and upcoming GPU HPC machines. As in previous years, we will discuss trends, implementations, and best practices for the OpenMP API while providing an interactive discussion for beginners and experts alike.
The session is split in three parts:
Part 1: OpenMP implementors will report on the current status of their implementations, including feature support for OpenMP API versions up to 5.2. and timelines through the various toolchains. This will be followed by a Q&A round for the attendees to ask questions and provide feedback.
Part 2: Members of the OpenMP language committee will discuss planned new features for the OpenMP API version 6.0, provide insight into the improvements that version 6.0. This will be followed by a Q&A round for the attendees to ask questions and provide feedback.
Part 3: We will end with an open floor discussion that invites everyone to provide feedback or ask questions about OpenMP, not limited to the topics presented.
