On April 19 took place in Champaign-Urbana (Illinois, USA) the 14th Annual Workshop on Charm++ and its Apllications. HPC4E researcher Rafael Keller Tesser, from UFRGS, presented Using SimGrid to Evaluate the Impact of AMPI Load Balancing In a Geophysics HPC Application, a research developed between groups from UFRGS and INRIA-Grenoble. The workshop was broadly focused on adaptivity in highly scalable parallel computing. It also took stock of recent results in adaptive runtime techniques in Charm++ and the collaborative interdisciplinary research projects developed using it.
The keynote speakers for this year's workshop were Professor Thomas Sterling (Executive Associate Director and Chief Scientist, Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST), Indiana University Bloomington) and Professor Barbara Chapman, Stony Brook University and Head of Computer Science and Mathematics Group at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
