High-level Programming Models for Computing Using Accelerators
SESSION: High-level Programming Models for Computing Using Accelerators
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Duncan Poole, Douglas Miles
There is consensus in the community that higher-level programming models based on directives or language extensions have significant value for enabling accelerator programming by domain experts. The past year has brought the introduction of several directive-based GPU and co-processor compilers, more progress within the OpenMP accelerator sub-committee, and continued development of GPU language extensions by large industry players and academics. This BoF will provide an overview of the status of various implementations, and explore and debate the merits of the current options and approaches for high-level heterogeneous manycore programming.
