ExaScience Life Lab, the Flemish Supercomputer Center and imec academy are pleased to announce a tutorial on the PGAS API GASPI, on October 1, at imec. Attendance is free of charge but you have to register via the Imec Academy page (use the ‘Request’ button to register). The number of places is limited.

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. In order to achieve its much improved scaling behaviour 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).

GASPI is successfully used in academic and industrial simulation applications. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) using Flemish Supercomputer infrastructure will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of GASPI.
