SYCL Takes Center Stage at SC19

SuperComputing (SC19) is the largest gathering of high performance computing experts in the world and it kicks off this weekend, Sunday, November 17 in Denver, CO. To kick off the conference, the Fifth International Workshop on Heterogeneous High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (H2RC 2019) will host two presentations on Sunday solely-focused on SYCL, the Khronos open standard language for C++ single-source heterogeneous programming for OpenCL. The keynote delivered by Ronan Keryell from Khronos member, Xilinx and will outline the benefits of using SYCL for FPGA programming in a talk entitled “SYCL: A Single-Source C++ Standard for Heterogeneous Computing.” Later in the morning at 11:00am Michael Kinsner and John Freeman from Intel will present “Data Flow Pipes: A SYCL Extension for Spatial Architectures,” describing the pipes extension that enables a more usable and flexible interface.
