A Renaissance for Domain-Specific Languages, Compilers and Code Generators for HPC and Big Data
TimeMonday, November 12th2:14pm - 2:36pm
DescriptionToday’s HPC architectures are diverse and complex. Achieving high performance often requires low-level, architecture-specific code that is difficult to derive and does not port across architectures. It seems that writing such code has reached a pain threshold for programmers, and this has motivated a true Renaissance in the role of programming system technology (languages, compilers and code generators) for mapping high-level code specifications to high-performance, architecture-specific implementations. This talk will highlight the role programming system technology in achieving performance portability from high-level code specifications.
