Abstract

In this panel discussion from the 2009 Workshop on Computer Architecture Research Directions, David August and Keshav Pingali debate whether explicitly parallel programming is a necessary evil for applications programmers, assess the current state of parallel programming models, and discuss possible routes toward finding the programming model for the multicore era.
