Workshop on “Task based Programming with HPX” at CSCS

CSCS is pleased to announce a 3-day workshop on “Task based Programming with HPX” to be held at CSCS in Lugano on September  29-30, 2016.

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the HPX library and demonstrate how it can be used to write task based programs. The HPX library implements a lightweight threading model that allows both concurrent, asynchronous, parallel and distributed programming constructs to coexist within the same application with a consistent API based on C++ standards and using futures to synchronize between tasks.

The course is aimed at students with a good understanding of C++ and may be considered as an extension of the “Advanced C++ for HPC” course held during the first part of the same week. The material covered will include an introduction to the HPX programming model; asynchronous programming concepts, execution policies and executors; parallel algorithms using tasks (including the parallel STL); writing distributed applications with HPX; profiling and debugging and a final section introducing heterogeneous programming using targets for GPU devices.

Registrations are now opened! The deadline for registration is September 16th, 2016.
