The University of Bristol HPC group has been very successful with submissions being accepted for IEEE/ACM SuperComputing in 2016.

This year we have research papers in the main track as well as at the PMBS workshop. We’re teaching what’s turning out to be one of the most popular tutorials at SC16, all about how to use the new features of OpenMP 4.5 to program GPUs. We have two poster presentations on some of our exciting work on performance portability and application-based fault tolerance. We’re giving a talk about how to write performance portable OpenMP 4.5 on the OpenMP booth. We have an exhibit in the SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase. And we’re participating in the OpenMP Birds of a Feather session, as well as speaking at Intel’s HPC Developer Conference on the Sunday. For the details on each of these SC’16 contributions, read on.

We hope to meet many of you at SC’16, come and say hello at one of the activities listed above! The whole of Bristol’s HPC team will be there - 7 of us in total - as well as other computational scientists from the University of Bristol and an SC’16 undergraduate student volunteer.
