Supercomputing in Plain English: A High Performance Computing Workshop Series, Starting January 22
January 22, 2013 @ 12:00 am
Supercomputing in Plain English (SiPE), Spring 2013 Available via free videoconferencing Tuesdays starting Jan 22 2013, 2:00 pm Central Time (4:00pm Atlantic, 3:00pm Eastern, 1:00pm Mountain, 12:00noon Pacific) These workshops focus on fundamental issues of HPC as they relate to Computational and Data-enabled Science & Engineering, including: * the storage hierarchy; * instruction-level parallelism; * high performance compilers; * shared memory parallelism (e.g., OpenMP); * distributed parallelism (e.g., MPI); * HPC application types and parallel paradigms; * multicore optimization; * high throughput computing; * GPGPU computing; * scientific and I/O libraries; * scientific visualization. The key philosophy of the SiPE workshops is that an HPC-based code should be maintainable, extensible and, most especially, portable across platforms, and should be sufficiently flexible that it can adapt to, and adopt, emerging HPC paradigms. SiPE is targeted at an audience of not just computer scientists but especially scientists and engineers, including a mixture of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff. Prerequisites: * For the presentations: — at least one semester of programming experience in any of C, C++ or Fortran, recently. * For the HPC exercises: — at least one semester of programming experience in any of C, C++ or Fortran, recently; — at least one semester of experience with any Unix-like operating system (could be Linux but doesn’t have to be), recently (if someone doesn’t have this, it’s not a crisis, because the basics are covered in the first exercise). Registration is now open! Send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
