Task dataflow is increasingly investigated as a programming model and execution model for high-performance and energy-efficient computing systems. The model requires programmers to annotate tasks with the data read and written by the task and uses this information to optimise runtime scheduling. This talk presents the rationale behind the design of Swan, analyses its performance and discusses current projects in high-performance computing and data analytics using Swan.
