BlueJeans Webinar: Lessons Learned of Directive-Based Programming Models for Accelerators


OpenMP and OpenACC are directive-based programming models which are currently used to program multicores and accelerators on our current leadership-class HPC systems such as Summit, Sierra, and Perlmutter. In this talk, I will discuss the successes, challenges, and lessons learned in using directives as an on-node programming model, as well as what features applications developers have identified as useful and challenging to use. I will also discuss the different strategies that compilers are using to implement these approaches and discuss the different benchmarks that currently exist to evaluate them on different platforms. Finally, I will discuss the relationship of directives with the new emerging frameworks (e.g., Kokkos, Raja), how parallel constructs are being adopted in the base language standards, and what this means for the (de)evolution of directive-based programming models.
