Description

Exascale computing is the next great challenge in supercomputing. Last year, Drs. Humaira Kamal and Alan Wagner, in the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, notched an exciting signpost on the road to exascale when their team executed programs with over 100 Million processes on 6,480 processor cores on WestGrid machines using Fine-Grain MPI. In this talk, they will share details of that experiment as well as highlights from their ongoing work with Fine-Grain MPI.
