Hybrid Parallelism: CS Colloquium Friday Dec. 7, 10:30am

Title: Hybrid Parallelism and Memory Affinity for Large Shared Arrays with Applications to Nuclear Structure Calculations

Date: Friday, December 7, 2012

Time: 10:30 AM

Place: E & CS Auditorium (First Floor)

Speaker: Dr. Masha Sosonkina
                  Department of Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Engineering
                  Old Dominion University

Brief Abstract:  We describe memory-pinning strategies aiming to minimize remote memory accesses in multithreaded applications such as sparce matrix-vector multiplication on multi-core machines. Performance gains of up to 350% were observed.
