14:15-15:00: High-Performance and Productivity Computing with Windows HPC
Mr. Doron Caspin, Architect Evangelist, Microsoft
It's a fact: Windows HPC Server 2008 (HPCS) combines the power of the Windows Server platform with rich, out-of-the-box functionality to help improve the productivity and reduce the complexity of your HPC environment. Windows HPC Server 2008 can efficiently scale to thousands of processing cores and provides a comprehensive set of deployment, administration, and monitoring tools that are easy to deploy, manage, and integrate with your existing infrastructure.This lecture will provide an overview on Microsoft HPC solution.
15:15-16:00: Introduction to Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB)
Dr. Ami Marowka, Department of Software Engineering, Shenkar
Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB) is a C++ template library aiming for developing parallel applications running on top of multi-core processors. The library consists of building blocks (data structures and algorithms) that free a programmer from some complications arising from the use of native threading mechanisms such as threads creation, synchronization, and termination. TBB abstracts access to the multiple processors by automating the process of data decomposition to small cache-friendly chunks of data called "tasks", and then schedules them to individual cores dynamically in an efficient manner. This approach enables the programmer to focus in the program logic rather than in the ways to optimize the program to the underlying machine architecture.
