!!! New! OpenMP 4.0

The OpenMP Consortium has released OpenMP 4.0 (pdf) a major upgrade of the OpenMP
standard language specifications.
Besides several major enhancements this release provides a new mechanism to
describe regions of code where data and/or computation should be moved to
another computing device, for example to accelerators like GPGPUs or Intel
MIC coprocessors.


The OpenMP ARB's Website has been considerably overhauled

Please find plenty of up-to-date information around OpenMP there.



cOMPunity is the community of OpenMP researchers and developers in academia and industry. It is a forum for the dissemination and exchange of information about OpenMP. cOMPunity is also a forum for discussing our experiences with this programming API and for debating ideas that might improve it. cOMPunity was formally incorporated as a non-profit organization on November 14, 2001

OpenMP was developed by a consortium of computer vendors to enable the creation of portable, high-level shared memory parallel programs under Fortran, C and C++.

The cOMPunity website will provide up-to-date information on OpenMP-related news and events. It is a repository of resources for learning about OpenMP, reading about the experiences of application developers who use the language, and for finding out about recent research activities. It will also be the site for obtaining OpenMP freeware and benchmarks.

We welcome contributions on all of the above.
For comments, suggestions and contributions concerning the web site feel free to contact the webmaster.
