SC 2022 AHUG Birds of a Feather

Time: November 15th, 5:15-6:45 PM CST

BoF Title: Arm Diversity Unified: Standardization in Hardware and Software

Session Leader: John Linford

Room: C141-143-149

Additional Session Leaders: Eva Siegmann, Steve Poole, Michèle Weiland, Jeffrey Young

BoF Description: This BoF brings together the Arm HPC community to discuss how current and future standards will influence the growing diversity of Arm-related hardware and software.  A panel composed of government, academic, and industry practitioners and vendors will discuss whether hardware standards (e.g., Armv9 and SBSA) and software standards (e.g., C++ Standard Parallelism and OpenMP) can sufficiently support the growing and diverse Arm hardware ecosystem. Audience participation is strongly encouraged with a focus on answering standards-related questions and facilitating the growth and interoperability of future Arm-based extreme scale systems.
