Automatically Exploring GPU Program Design Spaces for Increased Productivity and Sustainability

SIAM CSE23 - SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE23) was held in RAI in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from Feb 26 to March 3. I dropped by on March 1 to give a talk in the special session on Towards Improvement of Sustainability and Productivity for Research Software. In this talk, I presented some of the challenges pertaining to software sustainability and programmer productivity in the development of High Performance Computing (HPC) applications, which often spans several decades. In particular, I discussed how auto-tuning technologies, such as Kernel Tuner and Kernel Launcher developed by our group, can offer solutions to these challenges.

The slides of the presentation are available on:
