GSoC 2018 Participants Announced!

We can now announce the participants in the STE||AR Group’s 2018 Google Summer of Code! We are very proud to announce the names of those 7 students who this year will be funded by Google to work on projects for our group.

These recipients represent only a handful of the many excellent proposals that we had to choose from. For those unfamiliar with the program, the Google Summer of Code Continue reading

HPX 1.1.0 Released!

The STE||AR Group is proud to announce the release of HPX 1.1.0, 10 years after the first commit! This release contains 2300 commits since the previous release and has closed over 150 issues. HPX 1.1.0 brings users full control over how HPX uses processing units, improvements to parallel algorithms and many other usability improvements. This release would not have been possible without the help of all the people who have contributed bug reports, questions, testing, code and improvements to the documentation. Thank you!

GSoC 17: Final documentation for Parallel algorithms 2

By taeguk (http://taeguk.me)

Abstract

HPX is “The C++ Standards Library for Concurrency and Parallelism”. So, implementing C++17 parallelism like N4409 is very important. Most of parallel algorithms are already implemented. But, still some algorithms are remained to be not implemented. My main Continue reading

GSoC 17: Final documentation for Parallel algorithms 1

By Ajai V George under the supervision of Marcin Copik

Abstract

My proposal was to implement distributed versions of STL parallel algorithms. The main focus has been on resolving as much of the pending work in  #1338 , which is about ensuring that these algorithms work seamlessly with distributed data structures like Continue reading
