Here are the

on the use of Haskell for constructing EDSLs for high performance computing, along with a 10 minute overview of Haskell support for multicore programming, presented at the LACSS 2009 Workshop on Non-Traditional Programming Models.


As the complexity of large-scale computing architecture increases, the effort needed to program these machines efficiently has grown dramatically. The challenge is how to bridge this “programmability gap”, making the hardware more accessible to domain experts. We argue for an approach based on
executable embedded domain specific languages (EDSLs)—small languages with focused expressive power hosted directly in existing high-level programming languages such as Haskell. We provide examples of EDSLs in use in industry today, and describe the advantages EDSLs have over general purpose languages in productivity, performance, correctness and cost.
