Session Schedule

Tuesday, September 23rd

Session: Auto-Tuning for Multicore and GPU I

Session Chair: Reiji Suda (The University of Tokyo, Japan)

14:35-15:20 (Invited) Jakub Kurzak (University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA): BEAST: An Automatic Tuner for Numerical Kernels on Accelerators

The objective of the BEAST project ( is to provide a tool chain for automatic tuning of numerical kernels on hardware accelerators and coprocessors. BEAST strives to deliver the infrastructure to support the three basic steps of the autotuning process: 1) an engine for setting up the search space and the pruning constraints, 2) a harness for parallel benchmarking and collection of performance metrics, and 3) a toolset for analysis of the collected data. BEAST puts strong emphasis on increasing developer insight into why given kernel / device combinations produce the performance profiles they do.

Jakub Kurzak received the MSc degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland, and the PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Houston, Texas. He is a Research Director at the Innovative Computing Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. His research interest include: numerical software for scientific computing, parallel programing models and runtime scheduling systems, and automatic software tuning for hardware accelerators. He has been involved in the development of many software packages, including: PLASMA, QUARK, PULSAR and BEAST.
