Developing Scalable Parallel Applications in X10
SESSION: Developing Scalable Parallel Applications in X10
EVENT TYPE: Tutorials
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):David Grove, David Cunningham, Vijay Saraswat, Olivier Tardieu
X10 is a modern object-oriented programming language specifically designed to support productive programming of large-scale, high-performance parallel applications. X10 is a realization of the Asynchronous PGAS (Partitioned Global Address Space) programming model in a Java-like language. The concepts and design patterns introduced in this tutorial via examples written in the X10 programming language will be applicable to other APGAS-based programming environments as well. The tutorial will include an introduction to the X10 language and its implementation and tooling, but will primarily focus on the effective use of X10 concepts to develop scalable, high-performance parallel applications. These concepts will be introduced and motivated by case studies of scalable X10 application programs, drawn from a number of domains including graph algorithms and machine learning. The usage of application frameworks such as the X10 array library, dynamic global load balancing framework, and distributed sparse matrix library will be highlighted in the examples. Participants will have the option of installing X10DT, a full-featured X10 IDE, and complete source code versions of all sample programs and applications presented in the tutorial to enable hands-on exploration of X10 concepts.
