Video: High-Performance and Scalable Designs of Programming Models for Exascale Systems

DK Panda, Ohio State University

“This talk will focus on programming models and their designs for upcoming exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators. Current status and future trends of MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models will be presented. We will discuss challenges in designing runtime environments for these programming models by taking into account support for multi-core, high-performance networks, GPGPUs, Intel MIC, scalable collectives (multi-core-aware, topology-aware, and power-aware), non-blocking collectives using Offload framework, one-sided RMA operations, schemes and architectures for fault-tolerance/fault-resilience.”
