Programming Models @ BSC

Boosting parallel computing research since 1989

Course on programming models using OmpSs

- Written by Xavier Teruel

Tutorial: Bucaramanga, COLOMBIA
Event date: June 3-6th, 2014
Speakers: Vicenç Beltran and Florentino Sainz


OmpSs is an effort to integrate features from the StarSs programming model developed by BSC into a single programming model. In particular, our objective is to extend OpenMP with new directives to support asynchronous parallelism and heterogeneity (devices like GPUs). However, it can also be understood as new directives extending other accelerator based APIs like CUDA or OpenCL. Our OmpSs environment is built on top of our Mercurium compiler and Nanos++ runtime system.
