Barcelona facility joins parallel programming consortium

8 May 2013



The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) has joined the OpenMP ARB, a consortium of leading hardware and software vendors and research organisations creating the standard for the most popular shared-memory parallel programming model in use today.

'We are proud to share our 15 years’ experience developing support for parallel programming models within the OpenMP community,' said Mateo Valero, director of BSC. 'Our researchers have been involved in OpenMP since the beginning, through cOMPunity. BSC has participated in the definition of the tasking model, lately with the inclusion of task dependences.'

'I look forward to BSC continuing their excellent technical contribution from the past into the future,' added Michael Wong, OpenMP CEO.

Barcelona Supercomputing Center is an HPC research centre that holds a significant group of computer science researchers and closely collaborates with IT Industry. Its computer science research covers all levels from the computer architecture to the parallel applications.
