OmpSs demos at Supercomputing 2017Venue: Colorado Convention Center. Denver, COLORADO. Event date: Speaker(s): Xavier Teruel
Two short demos at the exhibition center showing the basic concepts of the OmpSs programming model. See you in the BSC booth (#1975).

OmpSs is completely developed at BSC and we use it as a forerunner for OpenMP. Like OpenMP, it is based on compiler directives. It is the base platform where we have developed OpenMP tasking, support for dependences, priorities, task reductions, and it also includes support for heterogeneous devices.
We will introduce the OmpSs fundamentals related to task-based parallelism for the SMP cores and then quickly move to the support for heterogeneous devices. OmpSs allows to leverage existing OpenCL and CUDA kernels without the burden to have to deal with data copies to/from the devices. Data copies are just triggered automatically by the OmpSs runtime, based on the task dependence annotations.
