Welcome and Opening


9:15 - 9:45 IST

Keynote - The oneAPI Software Abstraction for Heterogeneous Computing

oneAPI is a cross-industry, open, standards-based unified programming model. The oneAPI specification extends existing developer programming models to enable a diverse set of hardware through language, a set of library APIs, and a low-level hardware interface to support cross-architecture programming. It builds upon industry standards and provides an open, cross-platform developer stack to improve productivity and innovation. At the core of oneAPI is the DPC++…

Tech Talk 1 - TCS IE Dynaport Smartport project

While marine terminals have continued to serve their purpose as epicenters of logistics since the beginnings of commerce, the world around them has evolved immeasurably. The ways of conducting business within ports is primed for the next evolutionary step as well, and machine learning is the decisive tool that will enable changes with profound impacts of the entirety of global logistics. To realize this potential,…

Lightning Talk- TAU Performance System​ & E4S

The TAU Performance System® [ ] supports profiling and tracing of programs written using the Intel OneAPI. Intel OneAPI provides two interfaces for programming – OpenCL and DPC++/SYCL for CPUs, GPUs, and other devices. With TAU, a user can observe the performance of the program both at the CPU and the GPU level. At the GPU level, TAU support the OpenCL profiling interface as well…

Lightning Talk- Audio from gravitational wave simulations

This project provides a simple interface to synthesize audio from gravitational waveforms produced by binary black hole inspiral-merger-ringdown (IMR) simulations using a modified version of the Effective-one-body-numerical-relativity version 2 higher modes (EOBNRv2HM) approximant included in LALSuite. The serial ODE solver stage of the simulation has been modified to use the Parareal parallel-in-time integration method, implemented in oneAPI.  The purpose of this project is to speed…

Lightning Talk- Race Detection on unified shared memory (USM)

The large-scale parallelism on modern GPUs have the potential of introducing concurrency errors. Prior work has looked into the problem of detecting data races in a GPU kernel with software-only or hardware-only support. Existing work has mostly ignored the challenges involved with detecting races on unified shared memory (USM). Traditional techniques that track the ‘happens-before’ relationship may not scale well for detecting data races across…

11:00 - 11:15 IST

Lightning Talk- Lattice Boltzmann Solvers in DPC++

SankhyaSutra Labs builds massively high fidelity multiphysics solvers which cater to design and optimization needs in the aerospace, automotive, healthcare, petrochemical and semiconductor process engineering sectors. Our high fidelity solvers are complemented by reduced order models, based on machine learning, which quickly filter out candidates of interest in very large dimensional design parameter spaces. I will highlight our experience while porting one of our core solvers…

Tech Talk 2 - Building an open, safe, accessible AI & HPC ecosystem

The world of AI & HPC is dominated by closed, proprietary software models. To get high performance today, systems need accelerators that have high levels of parallelism, but use closed programming models like CUDA. How do we open this up? How do we make these models safe enough to drive a car? How do we get an industry to work together with industry standards? Andrew…
