11:00 AM-1:00 PM
Programmer productivity is a major concern, in particular in the creation of codes of high performance for scalable architectures. High-level descriptions offer high productivity by having high expressitivity. But such descriptions are useful in high performance computation only if efficient code can be generated.
Domain-specific formal languages and visual programming languages are but two of the approaches to achieving productivity. Domain-specific languages, for example, allow the programmer to describe a program in a notation close to or identical to the one used in the discipline, but create a serious challenge for compiler technology.
The speakers in this minisymposium will present some current attempts to compile efficient parallel code for scientific applications and report on early accomplishments.
