DescriptionThe OpenPOWER Foundation has been established as a technology organization that enables collaboration between different technology providers resulting in new solutions for HPC and HPDA solutions. Systems with nodes based on IBM POWER9 processors with NVLink-attached NVIDIA V100 GPUs provide about 18% of the performance of the current Top500 systems. CAPI and OpenCAPI are receiving increasing attention as interface for attaching other types of accelerators like FPGAs.

This workshop will provide a venue for HPC and extreme-scale data technology experts as well as for application developers to present results obtained on OpenPOWER technologies. The latest advances in OpenPOWER addressing challenges in system architecture, networking, memory designs, exploitation of accelerators, programming models, and porting applications in machine learning, data analytics, modeling and simulation are of current interest within the HPC community and this workshop. In particular, the use of the new NVLink technology as well as the use of the CAPI/OpenCAPI technology is of interest. Closely related topics also include OpenACC, OpenMP, OpenSHMEM, MPI, developer and performance tools, etc. for the OpenPOWER ecosystem.

This would be the 4th edition of the workshops. All IWOPH workshops organised since ISC’16 were well attended. We observe an increasing number of paper submission.
