Scaling to Petascale Institute
Monday, June 26, 2017 @ 8:00 am - Friday, June 30, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Registrations are now open at https://bluewaters.ncsa.illinois.edu/petascale-summer-institute/registration
Scaling to Petascale Institute:
- Do you have a computational problem that would benefit from using a large scale computing system?
- Do you need to scale your simulation or data analysis to a Petascale system?
This institute is for people developing, modifying and supporting research projects who seek to enhance their knowledge and skills to scale software to Petascale and emerging extreme scale computing systems. Participants should have familiarity with Linux, programming in Fortran, C, C++, Python or similar language, and familiarity with MPI (message passing interface). There will be hands-on activities for many of the sessions.
Presentations will be made by faculty and professionals from Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), the Blue Waters project at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), Stony Brook University, and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).
Attend the Institute in person at UCLA-IDRE. Participants will be able to verbally ask questions of the presenters through two-way video conferencing facilities. Participants will receive training accounts on the Blue Waters, NERSC and TACC systems. Staff will be available at each site to assist during hands-on sessions. Seating at each site is limited, and registration is handled on a first-come first-served basis.
The agenda will address the following topics:
- MPI – Introduction and Advanced topics
- Scaling, code profiling, and debugging
- GPU programming
- Phi programming
- Software libraries
- Parallel I/O
- Software engineering
The institute is led by Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), the Blue Waters project at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).
