A parallel programming model is a set of software technologies to express parallel algorithms and match applications with the underlying parallel systems. It encloses the areas of applications, programming languages, compilers, libraries, communications systems, and parallel I/O. Due to the difficulties in automatic parallelization today, people have to choose a proper parallel programming model or a form of mixture of them to develop their parallel applications on a particular platform.

Illinois ECE 498AL: Programming Massively Parallel Processors
11 Aug 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Wen-Mei W Hwu
Spring 2009Virtually all semiconductor market domains, including PCs, game consoles, mobile handsets, servers, supercomputers, and networks, are converging to concurrent platforms. There are two important reasons for this trend. First, these concurrent processors can potentially offer more...
The Multicore Era: Crisis or (and?) Opportunity?
27 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mithuna Thottethodi
This talk will provide a brief overview of how we got to the multicore era, the implications and challenges for hardware/software developers and users, and some informed speculation on where the trends may be headed.

MPI for the Next Generation of Supercomputing
out of 5 stars
05 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Lumsdaine
Despite premature rumours of its demise, MPI continues to be the de facto standard for high-performance parallel computing. Nonetheless, supercomputing software and the high-end ecosystem continue to advance, creating challenges to several aspects of MPI. In this talk we will review the design...

Nanoelectronic Modeling: Multimillion Atom Simulations, Transport, and HPC Scaling to 23,000 Processors
07 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Future field effect transistors will be on the same length scales as “esoteric” devices such as quantum dots, nanowires, ultra-scaled quantum wells, and resonant tunneling diodes. In those structures the behavior of carriers and their interaction with their environment need to be fundamentally...
Development of a Nanoelectronic 3-D (NEMO 3-D ) Simulator for Multimillion Atom Simulations and Its Application to Alloyed Quantum Dots
14 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Timothy Boykin
Material layers with a thickness of a few nanometers are common-place in today’s semiconductordevices. Before long, device fabrication methods will reach a point at which the other two devicedimensions are scaled down to few tens of nanometers. The total atom count in such deca-nanodevices is...
