Programming of Heterogeneous Systems in Physics PHSP14, Jena, Germany

Workshop Programming of Heterogeneous Systems in Physics PHSP14
Jena, Germany, 14-15 July 2014

This workshop will focus on aspects of heterogeneous computing systems, including GPU computing, accelerators offloading, vector instruction sets and the multi level hierarchy of distributed and shared memory resources found in large scale computing.

The first day of the workshop is dedicated to an introduction to programming aspects. A tutorial including a hands-on session will give the opportunity for less experienced participants to learn about GPU computing. The next day of the workshop will discuss how physics applications, especially in relativity and quantum field theory, may benefit from the use of accelerators. The topics covered by this workshops are:

– Programming techniques, library and language design for heterogeneous systems. Issues of portability and performance.

– Parallel numerical algorithms and algorithms tailored or tuned for a specific system.

– Optimization of computational kernels. Tools and techniques for high performance, energy efficiency, or effective code development.

Abstracts should be submitted by end of April 2014.
