Antonio J. Peña, a postdoc in the Programming Models and Runtime Systems group, successfully presented his research about the efficient use of explicitly managed memory subsystems at IEEE Cluster 2014.
Here is the paper he presented: Antonio J. Peña and Pavan Balaji, “Toward the Efficient Use of Multiple Explicitly Managed Memory Subsystems.” IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing (Cluster). Sep. 22–26, 2014, Madrid, Spain. And, you can find Antonio’s homepage here.
Antonio J. Peña, a postdoc in the Programming Models and Runtime Systems group, successfully presented his research about memory profiling tools at the P2S2 2014 workshop held in conjunction with ICPP 2014.
Here is the paper he presented: Antonio J. Peña and Pavan Balaji, A Framework for Tracking Memory Accesses in Scientific Applications. And, you can find Antonio’s homepage here.
Last week we went to Pinstripes for a bowling game and farewell lunch for summer intern students, Sayan, Priyanka and Jichi. Following is a picture from that:
Congratulations to Judi, Xin and Jim (former postdoc in the group, now at Intel) for driving the following papers that were accepted at SC 2014:
“Nonblocking Epochs in MPI One-Sided Communication”, Judicael Zounmevo, Xin Zhao, Pavan Balaji, William Gropp, and Ahmad Afsahi
“MC-Checker: Detecting Memory Consistency Errors in MPI One-Sided Applications”, Zhezhe Chen, James Dinan, Zhen Tang, Pavan Balaji, Hua Zhong, Jun Wei, Tao Huang, and Feng Qin
Special congratulations to Judi and Xin for having their paper selected as one of the best paper finalists. The final decisions on the best paper will take place at the conference, taking both the reviews and the presentation into account.
The second paper was something Jim started while he was at Argonne, and pursued it even after he moved to Intel. It’s great to have that work published.
Xin Zhao, a Ph.D. candidate in Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and a visitor to PMRS group, successfully presented her work at the Eleventh Workshop of the INRIA-Illinois-ANL Joint Laboratory on Petascale Computing. Her talk title was: “Programming Runtime Support for Irregular Computations”.
You can find Xin’s homepage here.
Min Si, a PhD student from The University of Tokyo and a visitor to PMRS group, presented her research about MT-MPI in ICS 2014.
Here is the paper she presented: Min Si, Antonio Peña, Pavan Balaji, Masamichi Takagi and Yutaka Ishikawa, MT-MPI: Multithreaded MPI for Many-core Environments. And you can find Min’s homepage here.
The Mathematics and Computer Science division at Argonne National Laboratory organized a full-day tutorial on “Parallel Programming with MPI”. The day-long, public tutorial took place on the Argonne campus (TCS Conference Center, Building 240, Room 1416), Friday, June 6th, from 9:00am till 5:30pm. The tutorial covered an introduction to MPI (morning) as well as advanced concepts in MPI (afternoon). More details are available at the tutorial website.
Followings are some pictures from the tutorial.
