  journal={19th International Symposium on High Performance Computing Systems and Applications (HPCS'05)},
Typically, only technical arguments like performance, cost or scalability are discussed if programming models and languages on high performance computing facilities are under consideration. In this paper, we investigate the impact of human factors such as personal preferences and perceptions, and personal experience on making technical decisions. We have queried a large HPC community of the Sharcnet project in Ontario in regards to general preferences and in regards to detailed usage of… CONTINUE READING
