International Workshop on Peta-Scale Computing Programming Environment,

Languages and Tools (WPSE 2009)

 The T2K (University of Tsukuba, University of Tokyo, Kyoto University) alliance conducts a project for the seamless and highly-productive parallel programming environment for high-performance computing project to realize a new portable efficient and convenient parallel programming environment for various machines from small scale to large-scale PC clusters and the next generation peta-scale supercomputer. This is a four-year research and development project funded by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, JAPAN. In our project, The following four work packages are carried out: (1) Highly Productive Parallel Programming Language, (2) Highly Productive Parallel Script Language (3) Auto-Tuning Numerical Libraries (4) Portable Single Runtime Environment

In this workshop, we will focus on the research topics of Highly Productive Parallel Programming Language and Portable Single Runtime Environment, and discuss new directions, opportunities and ideas that exploit the seamless and highly-productive parallel programming environment for high-performance peat-scale computing.
