2012 Many-Core Developer’s Conference

On 5 December, I attended the UK Many Core Developer’s Conference (UKMAC 2012), a supercomputing conference organized by Simon McIntosh-Smith. I gave a presentation & demo of danceroom Spectroscopy, with emphasis on the algorithms and heterogeneous parallelization strategies we’ve implemented to build it (see video above). There were several interesting presentations, including: Adapteva’s Andreas Olofsson keynote lecture about designing small, energy-efficient parallel architectures; Alan Gray (Edinburgh, EPCC) talking about scaling soft matter physics code to more than one thousand (!) GPUs; Zheng Wang (Edinburgh) talking about auto-generating OpenCL code from OpenMP pragmas; and Pedro Gonnet (Durham) talking about task-based parallelization algorithms applied to molecular dynamics simulations.
