“The silver bullet in HLS is the ability to take a sequential description that has been written in C and then find this parallelism, the concurrencies, without the user having to think. That was a necessary technology before we could do anything. It has been adopted by thousands of users already as a standalone technology, but what we do is embed that technology inside OpenCL compilers so that now it can be utilised in full software mode and it is fully compatible with OpenCL.”

A Merit Based Priority Scheme to Optimize the Use of Computing Infrastructure

Gowtham

“Following up on the “Streamlining Research Computing Infrastructure: A Small School’s Perspective”, this talk will discuss how a researcher’s priority in a shared HPC cluster is computed based on her/his usage pattern as well as productivity. Coupled with transparent functionality and reporting scheme at nearly every level, this merit based priority scheme has enabled consistently high usage (85+%) throughout 20 months of operation and has helped researchers at Michigan Technological University to produce 30+ publications from approximately 30 different projects.”
