This talk will describe HdpH: A domain specific language and runtime system for distributed parallel computation. We show, by example, the simplicity of the domain specific language and the features required to specify parallel computations. A description of the HdpH runtime system, work-stealing scheduler, and overall system architecture follows.

Time permitting we will discuss future directions for HdpH and show how it relates to other distributed frameworks such as Cloud Haskell, Eden and Gum/GpH.

The HdpH Framework for Parallel Distributed Computation

Blair Archibald

A current Ph.D student at the University of Glasgow working on distributed programming using Haskell and the Haskell Distributed Parallel Haskell (HdpH) DSL. His main interests are providing fast and scalable applications while maintaining a simplistic programming interface to enable non-expert users to make use of the current distributed computing trends.
