Title:Introduction to Parallel Computing and a Parallel Programming Language CC$
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Wenchao Guan, Sun Yat-Sen University
Abstract:
In this talk, I will give a quick overview of parallel computing which covers introduction to popular computing devices and supercomputers, challenges in high performance computing, parallel programming models and some basic concepts. And then I will present CC$, a parallel programming language for distributed many-core platforms which is developed by Junfeng Wu in Sun Yet-sen University. CC$ aims at reducing the programming complexity on distributed many-core systems. The programs on CC$ machines are executed with Multi-BSP super-steps. And there are four key features of CC$: unified programming style for all levels, built-in multi-level common address spaces, description of data access requests with expressions, compile-time optimization for data transport. Finally I will present the performance of CC$ on CPU-GPU Heterogenous Clusters.
