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.
The work towards a highly productive programming environment for heterogeneous exascale computing carried out by the European project EPEEC has reached an important milestone with the publication of the EPEEC Programming Guidelines for Parallel Applications.
