Communicating Process Architectures
Communicating Process Architectures 2014,
the 36th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from
Sunday August 24th to Wednesday August 27th 2014 and is hosted by the
Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford.
Accommodation and evening Fringe sessions will be at
St. Anne's College,
a few minutes walk from the Department.
WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas,
tools and products in computer science.
It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address
key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity.
WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:
and to stimulate discussion and ideas on the roles concurrency will play in the future:
theory (programming models, process algebra, semantics, ...);
practice (multicore processors and run-times, clusters, clouds, libraries, languages, verification, model checking, ...);
education (at school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ...);
applications (complex systems, modelling, supercomputing, embedded systems, robotics, games, e-commerce, ...);
Of course, neither of the above sets of bullets are exclusive.
for the next generation of scalable computer infrastructure (hard and soft) and application,
where scaling means the ability to ramp up functionality (stay in control as complexity increases)
as well as physical metrics (such as absolute performance and response times);
for system integrity (dependability, security, safety, liveness, ...);
for making things simple.
A database of papers and presentations from WoTUG conferences is here.
The Abstract below has been randomly selected from this database.
The PARIX pregramming environment
The new Parsytec GC is a high-performance parallel processing system for scientific and technical applications.Between 64 and 16,384 processors provide a computational performance from 1 to 400 GigaFlops (peak performance, double precision, 190 GigaFlops sustained, double precision) thus meeting even the most extreme demands.In the software environment PARIX, users work with standard compilers for Fortran and C, make use of UNIXdevelopment tools and libraries and have high-performance systems for I/O, backup, graphics and video.The Parsytec GC is based on Inmos T9000 processors which can be structured into random topologies and which communicate both, the Inmos T800/T805 and the, at a maximal rate of 80 MBytes/s.
