4th Annual Workshop on Charm++ and its Applications 2005

http://charm.cs.uiuc.edu/charmWorkshop

Hosted by the Parallel Programming Laboratory
Department of Computer Science
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

October 17-19,2005

Charm++/AMPI and the frameworks built upon them have emerged as powerful 
parallel
programming systems in recent years. By allowing the programmer to 
divide the
computation into a large number of entities, which are mapped to the 
available processors
by an intelligent runtime system, Charm++ enables a separation of 
concerns that leads to
both improved productivity and higher performance. Powerful abstractions 
are available
in the FEM, POSE, MSA, and Multiblock frameworks. Charm++ frameworks have
enabled applications ranging from molecular dynamics, cosmology, network 
simulation,
materials science, and rocket simulation.

The workshop will focus on showcasing the latest leading research in 
parallel processing
using Charm++ and its frameworks.

Topics will include advances in Parallel Simulation with POSE; Fault 
Tolerance
techniques; Communication Optimization libraries and frameworks; Load 
Balancing
strategies; as well as advances in AMPI/Charm++ primitives and runtime 
system.

Authors and attendees are encouraged to share their experiences with the 
systems built
upon Charm++/AMPI as well as Charm++/AMPI itself. The workshop will be a 
forum
for developers and users of Charm++ to interact closely.

The workshop is also aimed at taking stock of the funded collaborative 
interdisciplinary
research projects involving the Charm++ system.

Tutorials:

There will be several tutorials demonstrating the different features of 
Charm++. The
tutorials will be presented by the Charm++ developers. Attendees are 
required to register
for the tutorials. Following is the tentative list of tutorials:

-    Charm++ and virtualization tutorial
-    How to write applications using Adaptive MPI
-    Using POSE for Parallel Discrete Event Simulation
-    Running your application on BigSim
-    Projections: Performance analysis
-    FEM framework
-    How to install and use the Faucets adaptive scheduler

Call For Papers:

Authors are invited to submit short manuscripts that demonstrate 
research and
development in all areas of parallel processing using Charm++ and AMPI. 
Submissions
should be in the form of extended abstracts up to 3 pages formatted in 
standard IEEE
format. The papers will not be published and the authors are encouraged 
to publish them
in other conferences. Some of the topics of interest are:

-    Parallel and Distributed Applications in science and engineering
-    Parallel Discrete Event Simulation techniques and applications
-    Parallel libraries and frameworks
-    Extensions and new features in Charm++
-    Massively parallel processing on future machines
-    Novel parallel programming models

Please send submissions to Eric Bohm (ebohm at uiuc.edu) by the deadline 
below.

Important dates:
-    Manuscripts due: September 2, 2005
-    Notification of acceptance: September 9, 2005
-    Workshop: October 17-19, 2005
