DescriptionOpenMP directives are the primary way in which shared-memory parallelism is expressed in HPC programs. Although OpenMP is 21 this year, it is not standing still. The fifth major release of the standard (OpenMP 5.0) was recently completed, and provides significant enhancements to OpenMP's capabilities in many areas, including improved support for offload accelerators.
In this BoF, we'll provide a short introduction to the new features of OpenMP 5.0 (from the people who wrote the standard), then give you plenty of time to ask them questions. We'll also give you time to grill members of the OpenMP Architecture Review Board.
