Workshop: Third Workshop on Accelerator Programming Using Directives (WACCPD)

The HPC community is in constant need for sophisticated software tools and techniques to port legacy code to these emerging platforms. Maintaining a single code base yet achieving performance portable solution continues to pose a daunting task. Directive-based programming models such as OpenACC, OpenMP tackle this issue by offering scientists a high-level approach to accelerate scientific applications and develop performance portable solutions.  To address the rapid pace of hardware evolution, developers continue to explore and add richer features to the various (parallel) programming standards. Domain scientists continue to explore the programming and tools space while preparing themselves for future Exascale systems. This workshop aims to solicit papers that explore innovative language features – their implementations, compilation & runtime scheduling techniques, performance optimization strategies, auto tuning tools exploring the optimization space and so on.
