Abstract : The paper presents X-Kaapi, a compact runtime for multicore architec- tures that brings multi parallel paradigms (parallel independent loops, fork-join tasks and dataflow tasks) in a unified framework without performance penalty. Comparisons on independent loops with OpenMP and on dense linear algebra with QUARK/PLASMA confirm our design decisions. Applied to EUROPLEXUS, an industrial simulation code for fast transient dynamics, we show that X-Kaapi achieves high speedups on multicore architectures by efficiently parallelizing both independent loops and dataflow tasks.
