Designing Energy Efficient Communication Runtime Systems for Data Centric Programming

The insatiable demand of high performance computing is being driven by the most computationally intensive applications such as computational chemistry, climate modeling, nuclear physics, etc. The last couple of decades have observed a tremendous rise in supercomputers with architectures ranging from traditional clusters to system-on-a-chip in order to achieve the peta-flop computing barrier. However, with advent of peta-flop-plus computing, the authors have ushered in an era where power efficient system software stack is imperative for execution on exascale systems and beyond. At the same time, computationally intensive applications are exploring programming models beyond traditional message passing, as a combination of Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) languages and libraries, providing one-sided communication paradigm with put, get and accumulate primitives.
