The Partitioned Global Address Space Programming Model - Birds of a Feather at SC13

The partitioned global address space (PGAS) programming model strikes a balance between the ease of programming due to its global address memory model and performance due to locality awareness. While developed for scalable systems, PGAS is gaining popularity due to the NUMA memory architectures on many-core chips. Some PGAS implementations include Co-Array Fortran, Chapel, UPC, X10, Phalanx, OpenShmem, Titanium and Habanero. PGAS concepts are influencing new architectural designs and are being incorporated into traditional HPC environments. This BOF will bring together developers, researchers and users for the exchange of ideas and information and to address common issues of concern.

TIME: Nov 20, 12:15PM - 1:15PM
