The 8th Annual Chapel Implementers and Users Workshop (CHIUW) will be held on June 4th, virtually on Zoom. Registration is required but free and easy.
CHIUW serves as a forum where users and developers of the Chapel language (chapel-lang.org) can gather to report on work being done with Chapel, exchange ideas, and forge new collaborations. Anyone interested in parallel programming and Chapel is encouraged to attend CHIUW, from long-term enthusiasts to those simply curious to learn more.
The highlight of this year's CHIUW is the keynote by Dr. Eric Laurendau of Polytechnique Montreal. As a professor of mechanical engineering, Eric's research interests are in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics and High-Performance Computing towards the study of aerodynamic flows over aircraft configurations. In his keynote, "HPC Lessons from 30 Years of Practice in CFD Towards Aircraft Design and Analysis", Eric will discuss the role of HPC in aerodynamic modeling an aircraft design in the past and in the future. He will focus on his team's effort in developing CHAMPS (CHApel Multiphysics Simulation), and show the impact of the Chapel language for large-scale problems (billions of unknowns), in its performance and also its ease of use.
The agenda consists of 14 other talks by authors affiliated with 11 different organizations from 5 countries. The talks will cover topics including
- uses of Chapel in data science, graph analytics, CFD and linear algebra
- portability of Chapel on GPUs
- optimizations in the Chapel compiler, runtime and modules,
