Second Place at SBAC-PAD/WSCAD Marathon of Parallel Programming 2017

25/10/2017 20:34

The LaPeSD/UFSC team (Alyson Pereira, Emmanuel Podestá Jr. and Bruno Marques) is the 2nd-place Winner of the Marathon of Parallel Programming, which was held in conjunction with International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing (SBAC-PAD) and Simpósio em Sistemas Computacionais de Alto Desempenho (WSCAD) in Campinas/SP.

LaPeSD/UFSC team receiving the award. Students: Alyson, Emmanuel and Bruno. Coach: Márcio.

Each team consists of three students members and a coach. They have about 5 hours to solve up to 9 problems. For Local Contest, the teams can also bring printed hard copy material (e.g. books, manuals, notes, papers). Judgment is strict. In the beginning of the contest, teams receive problem descriptions and sequential (serial) solutions. Resolution involves not only the correct problem solution but also performance speedup for parallel (or distributed) version, measured according to criteria defined by committee for current contest.

Paper presentation at HPCS 2017

28/07/2017 13:26

Rodrigo Rocha, one of the coauthors of the work of Alyson Pereira, presented the paper entitled Extending OpenACC for Efficient Stencil Code Generation and Execution by Skeleton Frameworks at the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS) in Genoa, Italy. This work was advised by Prof. Márcio Castro.

In this work, Alyson proposed OpenACC extensions to enable efficient code generation and execution of stencil applications by parallel skeleton frameworks such as PSkel. The results show that our stencil extensions may improve the performance of OpenACC in up to 28% and 45% on GPU and CPU, respectively.
