 Active Pebbles: A Programming Model For Highly Parallel Fine-Grained Data-Driven Computations

(In Proceedings of the 16th ACM symposium on Principles and practice of parallel programming, pages 305--306, ISBN: 978-1-4503-0119-0, Feb. 2011, (poster paper) )
PPoPP'11 Best Poster Award

Abstract

A variety of programming and models exist to support large-scale, distributed memory, parallel computation. These programming models have historically targeted coarse-grained applications with natural locality such as those found in a variety of scientific simulations of the physical world. Fine-grained, irregular, and unstructured applications such as those found in biology, social network analysis, and graph theory are less well supported. We propose Active Pebbles, a programming model which allows these applications to be expressed naturally; an accompanying execution model ensures performance and scalability.
