Title: DARMA v. Beta 0.5

Abstract

DARMA is a portability layer for asynchronous many-task (AMT) runtime systems. AMT runtime systems show promise to mitigate challenges imposed by next generation high performance computing architectures. However, current runtime system technologies are not production-ready. DARMA is a portability layer that seeks to insulate application developers from idiosyncrasies of individual runtime systems, thereby facilitating application-developer use of these technologies. DARMA comprises a frontend application programming interface (API) for application developers, a backend API for runtime system developers, and a translation that translates frontend API calls into backend API calls. Application developers use C++ abstractions to annotate both data and tasks in their code. The DARMA translation layer uses C++ template metaprogramming to capture data-task dependencies, and provides this information to a potential backend runtime system via a series of backend API calls.
