VII Spanish Parallel Programming Contest

Edsger W. Dijkstra

Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.

Important information

The VII Spanish Parallel Programming Contest (non-Spanish teams can participate in exhibition mode, without option to price) will celebrate as part of the Jornadas Sarteco, to celebrate in Málaga, Spain, between 20th and 22nd September 2017. Non Spanish teams and individual can participate online in Exhibition Mode. The inscription is open in this page until September 14nd.

Parallel systems have become a standard, and the Spanish Parallel Programming Contest is organized with the aim of promoting this programming paradigm among University students.

Non Spanish individuals or teams, without limite of age, not necessarily from university, can participate in Exhibition Mode: without be included in the classification and without option to prizes.
CHANGES in the 2017 contest:

  • Systems of the CESGA are used for the tests.
  • A test is now open in the system of CESGA where the contest will run, with OpenMP, MPI+OpenMP and CUDA problems of edition 2011, and another small system (a quad core) to practise with OpenMP and MPI problems of all the editions. Accounts can be automatically obtained. If a new record is obtained, access will be given to the corresponding contest in the system of CESGA for its validation and inclusion in the table of records.
  • It is planned to include problems for Xeon Phi.

The contest will consist of solving a number of problems in a given time. For each of the problems a sequential solution will be provided, and the teams will then develop their own faster solutions using a set of given technologies such as OpenMP, MPI or CUDA.
