Distributed futures

Participant : Ludovic Henrio.

We proposed the definition of distributed futures, a construct that provides at the same time a data container similar to a distributed vector, and a single synchronization entity that behaves similarly to a standard future. This simple construct makes it easy to program a composition, in a task-parallel way, of several massively data-parallel tasks. This work will be presented in Sac 2020 (we are currently working on the final version of the paper). This work is realised in collaboration with Pierre Leca and Wijnand Suijlen (Huawei Technologies), and Françoise Baude (Université Côte d'Azur, CNRS, I3S).
