HPCS Language Workshop
July 12-13, 2006
The "Programming Models for HPCS" Project will host a workshop at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to plan the next stage of the advanced language part of DARPA's HPCS program. The workshop will focus on the languages X10, Chapel, and Fortress, proposed by IBM, Cray, and Sun respectively, together. We will discuss how their designs and implementations might evolve in Phase III of the DARPA HPCS program. Information on the languages can be found here.
In addition to the HPCS vendors, we plan to include members of the "Programming Models for HPCS" Project (listed below) who have been engaged in a DARPA-funded study of the languages and continuing research in compiler and runtime issues related to their efficient implementation. We have also invited a small number of representatives from application groups.
Topics are likely to include:
The agenda, still being finalized, will include presentations on the current state of the language efforts, description of application needs, and an examination of critical implementation issues.
The workshop will be hosted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Doubletree hotel in Oak Ridge. To register for the workshop, contact Sherry Hempfling at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the web site at
