HPX: A high-level approach to standarize asynchronous and massive parallelism in C++


The development of processor and computer architectures in the last 10 to 15 years was mainly driven on technology side by the necessity to get the energy consumption under control. This leaded to an observed movement from single to multi-many core architectures and finally to intensified heterogeneous architectures. On the other side, this heterogeneity hindered the programming of such architectures for HPC, and in increasing way also for embedded applications. Different solutions emerged to control this complexity like library solutions, language extensions, domain-specific languages (DSLs), and experimental programming languages.

In this keynote we discuss another approach to hide heterogeneity and to establish long-term sustainability by a consequent setting on C++. HPX offers a parallel runtime system which extends the C++11/14 standard to facilitate distributed operations, to enable fine-grained constraint based parallelism, and to support runtime adaptive resource management. The keynote gives insight in the setup of HPX and demonstrates its applicability for HPC as well as compute-intensive embedded systems.

Short bio

dietmarFeyProf. Dr.-Ing. Dietmar Fey holds a diploma degree in Computer Science from Friedrich-Alexander-University (FAU) Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany.  In 1992 he received a Ph.D. from FAU with a work on an investigation about Using Optics in Computer Architectures. From 1994 to 1999 he researched at Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena where he made his habilitation. From 1999 to 2001 he worked as lecturer at University Siegen before he became a Professor for Computer Engineering at University Jena. Since 2009 he leads the Chair for Computer Architectureat Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). His research interests are in parallel computer architectures, parallel programming environments, parallel embedded systems, and memristive computing.
