I was hoping to get in contact with someone from your project who is interested in mentoring these tasks or would be able to chat with me more about the tasks. I have experience in programming for GPUs on a variety of models of NVIDIA cards and have worked with multi-GPU programming on clusters of Fermi and Tesla cards. I also have experience using both OpenMP and MPI and am interested in combining both GPU parallelization and host side parallelization through MPI. To me, the most interesting aspect of these kinds of projects is finding the optimal granularity of parallelization and performing a kind of dynamic load balancing through allocation of tasks to the available compute nodes and/or GPUs. This would be the main focus of my proposal. I have questions about the expected scope of a JtR tasks proposal and the platforms, architectures and compilers that would be acceptable to be used for this project. Apologies for double posting to both lists, I was not sure which was the best to send a GSoC related post, so I sent to both :-) Regards, Doug Hains. Content of type "text/html" skipped
