AMPERE training at ACACES 2021
Dayana Fernandes Muzzetto

Eduardo Quiñones, AMPERE's coordinator, will be teaching a course titled 'Task-based Parallel Programming Models: The Convergence of High-Performance and Cyber-Physical Computing Domains' from 13 to 17 September 2021 at 14:30 each training day.

This course will address the challenges of applying HPC task-based parallel programming models (e.g., OpenMP, COMPSs) for developing, deploying, and efficiently executing advanced CPS across the compute continuum. The course will focus on the syntax and semantics of the task-based models and will present the support needed by the compiler analysis and runtime to guarantee functional correctness and real-time requirements. Fine-grained and coarse-grained parallelisation strategies will be considered as well. During the course, examples of advanced CPS from the automotive, smart mobility, and large scientific infrastructures will be considered.  

The complexity of Cyber-Physical Embedded Systems (CPS) has significantly increased. Originally executed on small microcontrollers with few interactions among them, current CPS implement complex functionalities that can benefit from both: (1) the parallel capabilities of advanced heterogeneous processor architectures featuring accelerator devices such as GPUs or FPGAs, and (2) the distribution of functionalities across the compute continuum, from edge to cloud.

About ACACES 2021

Computer performance has increased by over 1,000-fold in the past three decades. This astonishing growth has fuelled major innovations across all aspects of society. New advances in drug discovery and diagnosis, product design and manufacturing, transportation and energy, scientific and environmental modelling, social networking and entertainment, financial analysis, all depend on continued increases in computer system performance. Computing systems are so fundamental to today’s society that they represent a basic resource, and form a strategic foundation for many of our most powerful and versatile tools and developments. Maintaining rapid growth in computing performance is key for tackling the societal challenges shaping Europe and assuring our global competitiveness in the future.

The ACACES Summer School is organized by the HiPEAC Network in collaboration with the TETRAMAX Innovation Action. ACACES 2021 is the seventeenth edition of the Summer School.

The ACACES Summer School is a one-week summer school for computer architects and tool builders working in the field of high performance computer architecture and compilation for computing systems. The school aims at the dissemination of advanced scientific knowledge and the promotion of international contacts among scientists from academia and industry.

A distinguishing feature of this Summer School is its broad scope ranging from low-level technological issues to advanced compilation techniques. In the design of modern computer systems, one has to be knowledgeable about architecture as well as about the quality of the code, and how to improve it. This summer school offers the ideal mix of the two worlds – both at the entry-level and at the most advanced level.

The summer school is open to everybody but previous training and/or experience in computer science, as well as a background in computer architecture or compilation, is indispensable.
