David Lecomber

“We all have our objectives for scalability. It may mean hundreds, thousands, or millions of cores to you. But spare a thought for the software teams. We need developers and application analysts in order to scale on that new machine. Do we expect only optimization? In reality, there is a necessary step before this: debugging. What should every application developer know about debugging at scale?”

“It’s frustrating to think that antiquated software is hampering discovery and innovation across the board. This is one of the driving reasons why Intel launched the Intel Parallel Computing Center (IPCC) program last October with an initial five collaborators and an open call for additional collaborators.”

“This talk will focus on challenges in designing software libraries and middleware for upcoming exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators. Two kinds of application domains – Scientific Computing and Big data will be considered. For scientific computing domain, we will discuss about challenges in designing runtime environments for MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models by taking into account support for multi-core, high-performance networks, GPGPUs and Intel MIC. “
