Prof. Vincenzo Innocente (CERN)

Description

Computing in these years zero has been caracterized by the advent of "multicore cpus". Effective exploitation of this new kind of computing architecture requires the adaptation of legacy software and enventually a shift of the programming paradigms to massive parallel. In this talk we will introduce the reasons that brough to the introduction of "multicore" hardware and the consequencies on system and application software. The activities initiated in HEP to adapt current software will be reviewed before presenting the perspective for the future

Vincenzo Innocente has been responsible of simulation and reconstruction
software for three generations of collider experiments at CERN.
He is currently the leader of a R&D project to adapt HEP software to run
efficiently on new multicore computing platforms.
