Visit the Khronos Booth #394

We have a lot going on in the Khronos booth! Drop by and meet some of the people from the Khronos working groups who can answer your technical questions about Khronos and its standards: SYCL, OpenCL, and more.

Free Khronos Stuff

We're giving away more than a place to sit and interesting talk about our favorite technologies. Get your free HPC t-shirt and SYSCL and OpenCL stickers and reference guides at the Khronos booth.

Free Beer in the Booth on Wednesday

Khronos-related Schedule

Exhibitor Forum: Khronos SYCL: Tomorrow’s Heterogeneous C++ and C Today
 November 14
4:30 – 5:00pm
View website

Presented by:
Michael Wong, Codeplay Software Ltd

This talk will demonstrate how SYCL can be used today to support your exascale C++ effort, leading to ISO-ready C++ code that can support numerical computations on any compute node+gpu combinations, while staying with the current and future C++ standard direction for executors and heterogeneous computing.

BOF: Distributed and Heterogeneous Programming in C++ for HPC
November 15th
12:15 – 1:15pm
View website

Session Leaders:
Michael Wong, Codeplay Software Ltd
Hal Finkel, Argonne National Library

In response to the HPC requirements from CORAL/SUMMIT to achieve exascale performance, we will discuss the programming models that support heterogeneous programming in C and C++ and future standardization work toward that exascale goal. We will discuss research in this domain and consolidate usage experience with the aim of passing that experience to ISO C and C++.

There are a number of C++ frameworks for parallel programming, including HPX, KoKKos, Raja, C++AMP, HCC, Boost.Compute, CUDA, and more. SYCL from Khronos provides heterogeneous computing built on OpenCL and C++, and Codeplay has released ComputeCpp Community Edition.
