International Workshop on Heterogeneous High-performance Reconfigurable Computing (H2RC’16)

Leading FPGA manufacturers have recently made a concerted effort to provide a range of higher-level, easier to use, design entries for programming FPGAs, including the OpenCL framework, already widely used by the HPC community for heterogeneous computing. OpenCL is particularly appealing because it offers the potential for portability to GPUs and Xeon Phi. Such initiatives are already stimulating new interest within the HPC community around the potential advantages of FPGAs over other architectures in terms of both performance and energy consumption, with increasing relevance to the challenges faced on the road to Exascale. With this in mind, this will be a unique workshop at SC that brings together HPC and heterogeneous-computing researchers to demonstrate and share experiences on how newly-available high-level programming models, including OpenCL, are already empowering HPC software developers to directly leverage FPGAs, and to identify future opportunities and needs for research in this area.
