Conference:Multicore Challenge 2014 (click here to see full programme)
Session Type:Multicore Tools Demonstration
Session Title:SYCLONE – An implementation of Khronos SYCL for OpenCL
Presenter/s:Dr. Paul Keir and Luke Iwanski
Designation:Head of Research
Abstract:This demonstration will present SYCLONE, Codeplay’s prototype implementation of the upcoming Khronos specification: SYCL for OpenCL. During the session we will walk through a number of small SYCL programs.

SYCL (sɪkəl – as in sickle) is a royalty-free, cross-platform C++ abstraction layer that builds on the underlying concepts, portability and efficiency of OpenCL, while adding the ease-of-use and flexibility of C++. For example, SYCL enables single source development where C++ template functions can contain both host and device code to construct complex algorithms that use OpenCL acceleration, and then re-use them throughout their source code on different types of data.

  • Standardising single-source C++11 compilation for OpenCL
  • A modular solution accommodating your own C++ host compiler
  • Mandatory host implementation allows simplified debugging
