HPC research group joins the OpenMP® project

«The increase in node-level parallelism and heterogeneity render scheduling and load balancing is critical for ensuring high performance in OpenMP applications», says Prof. Dr. Florina Ciorba from the HPC research group (via a press release on Businesswire). «We are very excited to join the OpenMP effort and work together to provide user-defined scheduling and load balancing interfaces and policies.»

The OpenMP ARB’s mission is to standardize directive-based, multi-language, high-level parallelism that is performant, productive, and portable. Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and software vendors, the OpenMP API is a portable, scalable model that provides parallel programmers with a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from embedded systems and accelerator devices to multi-core and shared-memory systems.
