OP2 is an “active” library framework for the solution of unstructured mesh-based applications. It utilizes source-to-source translation and compilation so that a single application code written using the OP2 API can be transformed into different parallel implementations for execution on different back-end hardware platforms. In this paper we(More)
GPUs devices are becoming critical building blocks of High-Performance platforms for performance and energy efficiency reasons. As a consequence, parallel programming environment such as OpenMP were extended to support offloading code to such devices. OpenMP compilers are faced with offering an efficient implementation of device-targeting constructs. One(More)
OP2 is an " active " library framework for the solution of un-structured mesh applications. It aims to decouple the scientific specification of an application from its parallel implementation to achieve code longevity and near-optimal performance by re-targeting the back-end to different multi-core/many-core hardware. This paper presents the design of the(More)
Emerging many-core platforms are very difficult to program in a performance portable manner whilst achieving high efficiency on a diverse range of architectures. We present work in progress on PyOP2, a high-level embedded domain-specific language for mesh-based simulation codes that executes numerical kernels in parallel over unstructured meshes.(More)

The LLVM community is currently developing OpenMP 4.1 support, consisting of software improvements for Clang and new runtime libraries. OpenMP 4.1 includes offloading constructs that permit execution of user selected regions on generic devices, external to the main host processor. This paper describes our ongoing work towards delivering support for OpenMP(More)
One of the most promising trends for next generation networks is to consider an integrated approach to the communication infrastructure and the processing layer. In particular, the introduction of broadband and reliable wireless networks allows the interaction of a huge number of devices all creating a single network. On the other hand, the grid paradigm is(More)
Many studies point to the difficulty of scaling existing computer architectures to meet the needs of an exascale system (i.e., capable of executing 10 18 floating-point operations per second), consuming no more than 20 MW in power, by around the year 2020. This paper outlines a new architecture, the Active Memory Cube, which reduces the energy of(More)
Pervasive Grid computing platforms are composed of a variety of fixed and mobile nodes, interconnected through multiple wireless and wired network technologies. Pervasive Grid Applications must adapt themselves to the state of their surrounding environment (context), which includes the state of the resources on which they are executed. By fo-cusing on a(More)
