Lukas Schmidt: Study of a Hierarchical Data Type for COMET, an HPC Programming Model Based on Components and Tasks

This is a Master's Thesis submission talk advised by Christian Perez (LIP, INRIA) and Michael Bader

COMET is a programing model that combines task- and component models for high-performance computing. The model aims to reduce the complexity of writing parallel applications while improving code reuse, maintainability and performance portability. This talk presents a study of an extension to the model that was developed in the scope of a master thesis at the 'Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme' (LIP) in Lyon, France. The extension allows the expression of parallelism on different levels of a hierarchical data type while allowing the implementation of the model, Halley, to keep its existing data type related components. The study addresses the run-time and memory consumption of an implementation of the extension.
