Special CSL Social Hour, Sept 14, 2018

We are glad to have Prof. Huang as social hour guest speaker this Friday, Sept 14th at 3:00PM in 369 CSL, In this week’s social hour Dr. Huang will talk about “Fast Parallel Programming with Complex Task Dependencies using Modern C++”.

Abstract: Parallel programming is a key component in high-performance software. However, it is difficult to write a correct parallel program especially under complex task dependencies. In this talk, I am going to introduce Cpp-Taskflow – an open-source C++17 library to help you quickly write parallel programs with task dependency constraints. According to out user, “Cpp-Taskflow has the cleanest tasking API he has ever seen.” I believe you will be able to master Cpp-Taskflow within 5 min and use it right away to boost your research project.

Bio: Dr. Huang is a Research Assistant Professor at CSL and ECE. His research focus on software systems and design automation. He won the 1st Place in ACM SIGDA CADathlon International Programming Contest (Olympic Game in EDA) and the 2nd Place in ACM Student Research Competition Grand Final (ACM Award Banquet). He also received the Graduate Award and Graduate Fellowship from the UIUC ECE department.
