ECP/NERSC UPC++ Tutorial

Registration is now open for the one day ECP/NERSC UPC++ tutorial.

UPC++ is a C++11 library providing classes and functions that support Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming. UPC++ provides mechanisms for low-overhead one-sided communication, moving computation to data through remote-procedure calls, and expressing dependencies between asynchronous computations and data movement. It is particularly well-suited for implementing elaborate distributed data structures where communication is irregular or fine-grained. The UPC++ interfaces are designed to be composable and similar to those used in conventional C++. The UPC++ programmer can expect communication to run at close to hardware speeds.

In this tutorial we will introduce basic concepts and advanced optimization techniques of UPC++. We will discuss the UPC++ memory and execution models and walk through implementing basic algorithms in UPC++. We will also look at irregular applications and how to take advantage of UPC++ features to optimize their performance.

This event can be attended on-site at NERSC or remotely via Zoom.  The remote connection information will be provided to the registrants closer to the event.  Registration is required for this event and space is limited so please register as soon as possible. Registration closes for this event when the limit is reached or on October 18, 2019.
