DescriptionOpenMP is the most popular way in which HPC codes exploit shared memory parallelism. OpenMP 5.0 has extended that support to include a comprehensive, vendor neutral, way to describe offloading computation to attached accelerators, as well as adding enhancements to the support for CPUs.

This BoF will provide you with the information you need to understand the new standard, as well as giving you the opportunity to question OpenMP experts, many of whom were involved in defining the standard.

After short (3 minutes maximum) presentations from the experts, most of the BoF time will be used for open discussion of questions from the audience.

If you want to improve your knowledge of modern OpenMP, and understand how its new features can be useful to you, you should attend this BoF.
