This year, the OpenMP Architecture Review Board is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first OpenMP API specification with a pair of events: OpenMPCon and the International Conference on OpenMP (IWOMP). Both events will take place the week of September 18 at Stony Brook University in New York.
Developers attending this year’s OpenMPCon and IWOMP conferences will have the added bonus of joining us to celebrate the vital contribution OpenMP has made by enabling high-performance computing over the past two decades and will also help us to shape OpenMP’s next twenty years,” said Michael Klemm, OpenMP CEO.
- OpenMPCon 2017 (18-20 Sept) provides a unique forum for OpenMP developers to present and discuss the development of real-world applications, libraries, tools and techniques that leverage the performance of parallel processing through the use of OpenMP. The submission deadline for OpenMPCon is June 1.
- IWOMP 2017 (21-22 Sept) focuses on the presentation of unpublished academic research and takes place immediately after OpenMPCon. The submission deadline for IWOMP is April 28.
Since its advent in 1997, the OpenMP programming model has proved to be a key driver behind parallel programming for shared-memory architectures. Its powerful and flexible programming model has allowed researchers from various domains to enable parallelism in their applications. Over the two decades of its existence, OpenMP has tracked the evolution of hardware and the complexities of software to ensure that it stays as relevant to today’s high performance computing community as it was in 1997.
