Massively Parallel Task-Based Programming with HPX

Date and Time: Tuesday, April 5, 2016 from 08:30 to 12:30

Abstract: The C++11/14 standard brings significant new parallel programming capability to the language with the introduction of a unified interface for asynchronous programming using futures. This style of programming enables fine-grained constraint-based parallelism, and avoids many load-balancing issues. HPX is a system which builds upon the C++11/14 standard, extending it to distributed operations and increasing its composability. By conforming to the standard, students will learn parallel concepts in a seamless and familiar environment. In this tutorial, students will learn first-hand the capabilities of these revolutionary tools. Firstly, we introduce participants to modern C++11/14 parallel programming, and then we show how to adapt C++ programs to modern massively parallel environments using HPX. Then through presentations and examples we show how this emerging runtime and language, HPX, allows users to use asynchronous concepts and active messaging techniques to gain performance and productivity in a variety of applications.
