Commonly-used patterns of parallel computation, communication, and interaction provide a high-level parallel programming methodology which allows the conceptual description of parallel programs whilst fostering platform independence and algorithm abstraction. This talk presents some trends in parallel patterns for CPU/GPU architectures to enable software and hardware virtualization. It will discuss some initial results and the plans in ParaPhrase, a novel 36-month €3.5 million European research project to develop a new structured pattern-based framework in Erlang and C/C++ for heterogeneous parallel architectures.
Talk objectives: Discuss parallel computing trends including multi/many core architectures. Illustrate parallel patterns for CPU/GPU architectures and their applications.
Target audience: Technical. From CTOs of mid-large size companies to High Performance Computing specialists.
