In the context of the EPEEC project, the organization is introducing support for tasks written in OpenACC or with the OpenMP target directives, to exploit heterogeneous environments with SMP cores and GPUs. The current status of the development is that the organization has integrated their OmpSs-2 programming model with the PGI compiler, and are able to generate parallel tasks automatically for the GPUs, based on directive annotations.

OmpSs-2 programming model

The Programming Models group at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) has published a new release (version 2020.06) of the OmpSs-2 programming model. In this release, we have added several new major features such as a compiler based on LLVM, an integrated tracing tool, and support for OpenACC kernels. Moreover, we have optimized the scheduler infrastructure, the memory allocator and the discrete dependency system to improve performance and scalability of OmpSs-2 applications on many-core systems.
