High-level parallel programming using Chapel
SESSION: High-level parallel programming using Chapel
EVENT TYPE: HPC Educator
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):David P. Bunde, Kyle Burke
Chapel is a parallel programming language that provides a wide variety of tools to exploit different kinds of parallelism. It is flexible, supporting both OO programming and a low-overhead style similar to scripting languages. Of particular note is its expressiveness; a single keyword launches an asynchronous task or performs a parallel reduction. Data parallelism is easily expressed using domains, index sets that can be grown, translated, or intersected. The availability of high-level parallel operations such as these makes Chapel well-suited for students since concise examples help them focus on the main point and students can quickly try different parallel algorithms. This session features a demonstration of the basics of Chapel, including hands-on exercises, followed by a discussion of ways it can benefit a wide variety of courses.
