A Computation-Driven Introduction to Parallel Programming in Chapel

SESSION: A Computation-Driven Introduction to Parallel Programming in Chapel

EVENT TYPE: Tutorials

TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM



Chapel (http://chapel.cray.com) is an emerging parallel language whose design and development are being led by Cray Inc. in collaboration with members of computing labs, academia, and industry—both domestically and internationally. Chapel aims to vastly improve programmability, generality, and portability compared to current parallel programming models while supporting comparable or improved performance. Chapel’s design and implementation are portable and open-source, supporting a wide spectrum of platforms from desktops (Mac, Linux, and Windows) to commodity clusters and large-scale systems developed by Cray and other vendors.

This tutorial will provide an in-depth introduction to Chapel’s concepts and features using a computation-driven approach: rather than simply lecturing on individual language features, we will introduce each Chapel concept by studying its use in a real computation taken from a motivating benchmark or proxy application. As time permits, we will also demonstrate Chapel interactively in lieu of a hands-on session. We’ll wrap up the tutorial by providing an overview of Chapel status and activities, and by soliciting participants for their feedback to improve Chapel’s utility for their parallel computing needs.
