SCC will be represented with even three contributions at the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium 2019 (IPDPS) in Rio de Janeiro. In cooperation with the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Tennessee, the Helmholtz Young Investigators Group FiNE (Fixed-Point Algorithms for Numerics at Exascale) has developed the first threshold-based incomplete LU preconditioner  for GPUs and will present it in the main track of the conference. A central part of the algorithm is an approximative sorting method for GPUs, which will be presented in the 9th International Workshop on Accelerators and Hybrid Exascale Systems (AsHES) .
In the Parallel and Distributed Scientific and Engineering Computing Workshop (PDSEC), the research group around Hartwig Anzt encourages to recognize the development of software patches as a conference contribution and academic achievement and underlines this in a position paper .
Contact: Dr. Hartwig Anzt
