Since the advent of multi-core systems, the C++ programming language has rapidly grown in popularity in the HPC community. A number of C++ parallel programming frameworks have been developed to address the needs of multi-threaded and distributed applications. The C++11/14/17 International Standard have introduced new tools for parallel programming to the language, and the ongoing standardization effort is developing additional features which will enable HPC applications.
The 2016 Berkeley C++ Summit is a 2-day gathering of HPC application developers, HPC facilities personnel, HPC C++ parallel programming framework developers and ISO C++ committee members. The summit will be held in the Computational Research and Theory (CRT) Facility (Building 59) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California on October 17-18 2016. The goals of the summit are to:
