International Workshop on OpenPOWER for HPC (IWOPH'17)

chaired by Dirk Pleiter (Forschungszentrum Juelich & Universitaet Regensburg), Jack Wells (ORNL)
Thursday, 22 June 2017 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at Marriott Frankfurt Hotel
This workshop will take place the day after the ISC High Performance conference 2017. It is intended to provide a venue for HPC and extreme-scale data technology experts as well as for application developers to present results obtained on OpenPOWER technologies. The latest advances in OpenPOWER addressing challenges in system architecture, networking, memory designs, exploitation of accelerators, programming models, and porting applications are of current interest within the HPC community and this workshop. In particular, the use of the new NVLink technology is of interest. Closely related topics also include OpenACC, OpenMP, OpenSHMEM, OpenUCX, MPI, developer and performance tools, etc. for the OpenPOWER ecosystem.
