Productive Programming in Chapel: a language for general, locality-aware parallelism
SESSION: Productive Programming in Chapel: a language for general, locality-aware parallelism
EVENT TYPE: Tutorials
TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM
Presenter(s):Bradford L. Chamberlain, Sung-Eun Choi
Chapel is an emerging parallel language being developed by Cray Inc. to improve the productivity of parallel programmers, from large-scale supercomputers to multicore laptops and workstations. Chapel aims to vastly improve programmability over current parallel programming models while supporting performance and portability that is comparable or better. Chapel supports far more general, dynamic, and data-driven models of parallel computation while also separating the expression of parallelism from that of locality/affinity control. Though being developed by Cray, Chapel is portable, open-source software that supports a wide spectrum of platforms including desktops (Mac, Linux, and Windows), UNIX-based commodity clusters, and systems sold by Cray and other vendors. This tutorial will provide an in-depth introduction to Chapel, from context and motivation to a detailed description of Chapel concepts via lecture, example computations, and live demos. We’ll conclude by giving an overview of ongoing Chapel activities and collaborations, and by soliciting participants for their feedback to improve Chapel’s utility for their parallel computing needs.
