10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Executive Salon 5
The goal of this minisymposium is to bring to the attention of computational scientists in the geosciences community the recent emergence of the OpenMP paradigm of parallel programming for Shared Memory Parallel (SMP) systems. The OpenMP paradigm (http://www.openmp.org) was launched in 1997 and has been adopted by several computer workstation and mainframe vendors for various implementations. It has attracted attention because OpenMP ports of legacy code have demonstrated scalable performance through incremental parallelism without requiring a major rewrite of an application as the first step. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss OpenMP features, parallel programming tools, real-world applications, performance issues, and comparisons with message passing paradigms.
