NLAFET kick-off

NLAFET kick-off

The NLAFET kick-off was held in the MIT building at Umeå University on November 9-10, 2015.

The aim for NLAFET us to enable a radical improvement in the performance and scalability of a wide range of real-world applications relying on linear algebra
software for future extreme-scale systems.

Research objectives: 

  • Development of novel architecture-aware algorithms that expose as much parallelism as possible, exploit heterogeneity, avoid communication bottlenecks, respond to escalating fault rates, and help meet emerging power constraints
  • Exploration of advanced scheduling strategies and runtime systems focusing on the extreme scale and strong scalability in multi/many-core and hybrid environments
  • Design and evaluation of novel strategies and software support for both offline and online auto-tuning
  • Results will appear in the open source NLAFET software library

The NLAFET project is coordinated by Umeå University (UMU) in cooperation with international partners from University of Manchester (UNIMAN), United Kingdom, Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA), France, and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), United Kingdom.
