Title: Parallel Programming Must Be Deterministic By Default
Author(s): Bocchino, Robert L., Jr.; Adve, Vikram S.; Adve, Sarita V.; Snir, Marc
Subject(s): parallel programming programming languages parallel systems
Abstract: We examine the problem of providing a parallel programming model that guarantees deterministic semantics. We propose a research agenda focusing on the following questions: 1. How to guarantee determinism in a modern object-oriented language; 2. How to provide sound guarantees when parts of the program either cannot be proved deterministic or have "harmless" nondeterminism; 3. How to specify explicit non-determinism when needed; and 4. How to make it easier to port programs to the language.
