The University of Tennessee Joins the OpenMP Effort

The University of Tennessee's (UT) Innovative Computing Laboratory has joined the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB), a group of leading hardware and software vendors and research organizations creating the standard for the most popular shared-memory parallel programming model in use today.

UT is Tennessee's flagship university and premier public research institution. It was founded in 1794 as the first public university chartered west of the Appalachian Divide. UT is proud to serve the state by educating its citizens and strives to embody excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, creative activity, outreach, and engagement.

The University of Tennessee joined the OpenMP ARB as part of an international effort to enable the efficient use of parallel and accelerated computer architectures that have become the mainstay of modern high-performance computing (HPC). With a decades-long tradition of being at the forefront of HPC development, UT will contribute to OpenMP's goals of ease-of-use, portability, and efficiency in parallel programming on current and upcoming HPC systems.

"The University of Tennessee has been involved in the development of many standards over the past thirty years," says Jack Dongarra, Distinguished Professor at the University of Tennessee. "We are proud to continue that effort in helping to define community standards by joining the OpenMP ARB."

"UT has a long history of contributions that shaped the way how HPC is done in the 21st century," says Michael Klemm, OpenMP ARB CEO. "Having UT on board of the OpenMP ARB will certainly help to drive the future of OpenMP."

With the addition of the University of Tennessee, the OpenMP ARB now has 33 members.

About OpenMP
The OpenMP ARB's mission is to standardize directive-based, multi-language, high-level parallelism that is performant, productive, and portable. Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and software vendors, the OpenMP API is a portable, scalable model that provides parallel programmers with a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from embedded systems and accelerator devices to multi-core and shared-memory systems. The OpenMP ARB owns the OpenMP brand, oversees the OpenMP specification, and produces and approves new versions of the specification. Additional information can be found at http://www.openmp.org/.
