(Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this email)
You are cordially invited to:
17th Annual Workshop on Charm++ and its Applications
May 1 - 2, 2019
NCSA Auditorium, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Website: https://charm.cs.illinois.edu/charmWorkshop
Hosted by the Parallel Programming Laboratory
Co-sponsored by Intel, NCSA, and Charmworks

(Want to present at the workshop? There is still time to submit an abstract)

Charm++ is a C++ based parallel programming system based on an introspective adaptive runtime system, with many features suitable for addressing upcoming extreme scale as well as mid-scale challenges. It supports multiple highly scalable parallel applications such as NAMD. Charm++, Adaptive MPI and Charm4py, are systems developed by the Parallel Programming Laboratory (PPL) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. PPL's goal is to develop technology that improves the performance of parallel applications while also improving programmer productivity. The workshop is broadly focused on adaptivity in highly scalable parallel computing. It also takes stock of recent results in adaptive runtime techniques in Charm++ and the collaborative interdisciplinary research projects developed using it.
The keynote speakers for this year's workshop are:
Fred Streitz, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Dr. Streitz, as the director of HPC Innovation Center and Institute for Scientific Computing Research, leads efforts to develop HPC applications that push the limits of leadership-class computational capability to address forefront scientific problems.
Steve Plimpton, Sandia National Laboratories. As a staff member of the Multiscale Science Department, his research involves implementing and using scientific simulations designed for parallel supercomputers, which often requires creation of efficient parallel algorithms.
There will also be several talks from Charm++ collaborators, external speakers, and members of the Parallel Programming Laboratory. Talks will cover various topics in High Performance Computing  including load balancing, performance visualization, interoperability, fault tolerance, recent runtime research, and progress in Charm++ applications. All slides and video will be posted to the website shortly after the workshop.
