Running Distributed Simulations at WinterSim 2013


Join Forio at the 2013 Winter Simulation Conference, December 8-11 in Washington, DC. The Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) is an international forum for discussing recent advances in dynamic systems modeling and simulation.

Forio’s presentation, Running Distributed Simulations Over Many Cores in Julia, will be given by Michael Bean on Tuesday December 10.

Abstract. Julia is an expressive, high-level, high-performance programming language for technical computing, with syntax similar to MATLAB®, Python, and R.

This presentation walks through the parallel computing functionality of Julia to implement an asynchronous parallel version of a simulation, demonstrating the complete workflow including running in the cloud using Forio Mandelbrot, Forio’s platform for running massively parallel Julia jobs. We will quickly review the simulation and will be focusing primarily on parallel computation patterns.
