“What next for OpenMP and for MPI?”
|Dates:||3 July 2015|
|Times:||14:00 - 15:30|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Who is it for:||University staff|
|Speaker:||Dr. Mark Bull|
OpenMP and MPI are the workhorse programming APIs for high performance computing applications. Both APIs are now quite mature, but yet are still under active development by their respective standards bodies. This talk will review the recent developments in, and future plans for, the OpenMP and MPI standards, and ask whether they can continue to adapt to the increasing hardware complexity we seem to be facing.
