Tis major upgrade to OpenCL adds support for next-generation heterogeneous systems, including shared virtual memory to share addresses between the host and the devices; support for nested parallelism enabling kernels to directly enqueue more kernels; a formal memory model based on C11, and much more. At the BoF session, discussions will revolve around how programmers can get more involved with OpenCL, including an OpenCL workshop (iwocl.org) planned for 12-13 May 2014 in Bristol UK. www.khronos.org/opencl


The OpenMP Consortium (#4117) will present OpenMP 4.0 at SC13. OpenMP 4.0 is a major advance that adds two new forms of parallelism in the form of device constructs for the support of accelerators, and SIMD constructs to vectorise both serial as well as parallelised loops. It also includes several significant extensions for the loop-based and


task-based forms of parallelism already supported in OpenMP 3.1. Tere will be presentations at


booth #4117, a BoF on OpenMP and an Exhibition Forum presentation focused on OpenMP 4.0. Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and soſtware vendors and the user community, OpenMP is a portable, scalable model that gives shared-memory parallel programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from multicore systems and SMPs, to embedded systems. www.openmp.org


Attendees are invited to meet the PGI (#2509) compiler team at SC13. Tis year, PGI will be demonstrating the upcoming PGI 2014 release packed with many new features and performance enhancements including industry-leading OpenMP for multi-core x64 CPUs, full support for OpenACC on both Nvidia Tesla and AMD Radeon


GPUs, support for Cuda Fortran debugging on Nvidia GPUs, and a new freely available version of its optimising PGI Fortran 2003 and C99 compilers for MacBook. Visitors to the booth will be able to watch the three demonstrations and receive a custom PGI T-shirt, with a limit of one per attendee, while supplies last. www.pgroup.com


PRACE (#3341), the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, will be showcasing its globally competitive high- performance computing ecosystem for European scientific and industrial competitiveness. PRACE is a pan-European Research Infrastructure that spans 25 nations and pools resources, leading-edge supercomputers as well as HPC expertise. Te PRACE systems and their operations are provided by four PRACE members: BSC representing Spain, CINECA representing Italy, GCS representing Germany, and GENCI representing France.


Highlights at SC13 will be the


PRACE Open R&D access for industry and the PRACE SHAPE pilot (SME HPC Adoption Programme, www.prace-project.eu/ shape) for small- to medium-sized businesses, as well as the ambitious Dare to Tink the Impossible (www.daretothinktheimpossible. com) outreach campaign to educate tomorrow’s researchers about the power of supercomputing and how it is applicable to society’s grand challenges. Visitors will also be informed of the training offered by the PRACE Advance Training Centres (PATCs – www.training. prace-ri.eu). www.prace-ri.eu


Q-Leap Networks (#641) will present the newest version of Qlustar, its full-fledged HPC/ storage cluster operating system (OS). Release highlights include a next-generation remote execution engine that permits easy and fast execution of parallel commands on
