During the PASC16 Conference a GASPI tutorial will take place. The meeting will take place on Tuesday 7 June 2016 from 10:00 to 16:00 in room BC 410, located in the “BC building”, on the EPFL campus in Lausanne. The meeting is co-located with PASC 2016 and free of charge.
In the GASPI tutorial we present an asynchronous data flow programming model for Partitioned Global Address Spaces (PGAS) as an alternative to the programming model of MPI. GASPI, which stands for Global Address Space Programming Interface, is a partitioned global address space (PGAS) API. The GASPI API is designed as a C/C++/Fortran library and focused on three key objectives: scalability, flexibility and fault tolerance. GASPI aims at asynchronous dataflow with remote completion, rather than bulk-synchronous message exchanges. GASPI follows a single/multiple program multiple data (SPMD/MPMD) approach and offers a small, yet powerful API (see also http://www.gaspi.de and http://www.gpi-site.com). Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of GASPI.
