The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) has joined the OpenMP ARB, a consortium of hardware and software vendors and research organizations creating a standard for shared-memory parallel programming.
"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," said Michael Wong, OpenMP CEO.
