Xavier Teruel 's talk

Fundamentals of OmpSs at ISC 2017

Venue: Candela Room at Marriott Hotel. Frankfurt, GERMANY. Event date: Speaker(s): Xavier Teruel

The OpenSuCo Workshop is a meeting point for the open source hardware, software, and scientific computing projects community. It looks for a singular point of technical discussion and exchange.

OmpSs is an effort to integrate features from the StarSs programming model developed at BSC into a single programming model. In particular, our objective is to extend OpenMP with new directives to support asynchronous parallelism and heterogeneity (devices like GPUs). However, it can also be understood as new directives extending other accelerator based APIs like CUDA or OpenCL. Our OmpSs environment is built on top of our Mercurium compiler and Nanos++ runtime system.

OpenMP F2F 2018-2

A good week in Bordeaux, France focused on closing different open topics in the specification and many of those who have been discussed during past weeks have been shaping up and they are in good condition to go through the committee’s votes.

OpenMP tasking at ISC 2018

An advanced tutorial using the tasking model of the OpenMP standard. This course includes recent addition of OpenMP 4.5, being all the lecturers part of the OpenMP language committee.


Last Face to Face meeting before the end of the project and we have report the work progress for the different work packages and several technical sessions in a one-and-a-half-day meeting in Stockholm, Sweden.

PATC (May, 2017)

The tutorial will motivate the audience on the need for portable, efficient programming models that put less pressure on program developers while still getting good performance for clusters and clusters with GPUs.

OpenMP F2F 2018-1

We have done a very good progress towards the future of the OpenMP 5.0 specification. We have discussed many issues and voted several tickets that finally have already been included in the specification (or will do in the short term).

OmpSs demos at SC 2017

Two short demos at the exhibition center showing the basic concepts of the OmpSs programming model. See you in the BSC booth (#1975).
