  An Ecosystem for Heterogeneous Parallel Computing  
(Seminar/Conference)

Prof. Wuchun Feng, Department of Computer Science, Virginia Tech is the speaker. The abstract of his talk is the following: With processor core counts doubling every 18-24 months and penetrating all markets from high-end servers in the data center to desktops and laptops down to even mobile phones, we sit at the dawn of a world of ubiquitous parallelism, one where extracting performance via parallelism is paramount. That is, the "free lunch" to better performance, where programmers could rely on substantial increases in single-threaded performance to improve software, is over. The burden falls on developers to exploit parallel hardware for performance gains. But how do we lower the cost of extracting such parallelism, particularly in the face of the increasing heterogeneity of processing cores? To address this issue, this talk will present a vision for delivering accessible and personalized supercomputing to the masses, one with a heterogeneity of (hardware) processing cores on a die or in a package, coupled with enabling software that tunes the parameters of the processing cores with respect to performance, power, and portability via a benchmark suite of computational dwarfs and applications.
