The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is pleased to
 announce the Summer School on Code Optimisation for Multi-Core and
 Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture at the Swiss National
 Supercomputing Centre in Lugano, Switzerland. In this three day
 intensive event participants will focus on programming and tuning
 techniques for modern multi- and many-core processors with a particular
 focus on the Intel Many Integrated Core architecture. Topics will be
 presented at an advanced level and will include structuring code to
 enable SIMD/vectorization, efficient usage of register, cache and
 memory hierarchies, use of multi-threading techniques to maximize
 resource utilization, data locality considerations on multi-socket NUMA
 nodes, and inter-node communication. Intel specialists will introduce
 the Intel MIC architecture and the Intel programming environment, and
 will delve into greater detail of the use of multi- and many-core
 programming techniques. Demonstrations and hands-on sessions will be
 integrated throughout the course to illustrate the topics in greater
 depth, and user case studies will highlight real-world experiences in
 optimising scientific (HPC) codes on the Intel MIC architecture.
 21st-23rd June 2012
 Swiss National Supercomputing Centre, Lugano, Switzerland
 To apply for a place please go to
 =43493&=en. The school is offered free of charge to students and
 academics residing in PRACE member states, and lunches, coffee breaks
 and an evening dinner event will be provided. Please note that a sound
 knowledge of C, C++ or Fortran is a pre-requisite for this course.
 Attendance is limited to 30 places, and selection of participants will
 be based on demonstrated understanding of computational science and
 high-performance computing and experience with at least one of MPI,
 OpenMP, or multi-core programming. Registration closes Friday 11th May
 2012, but we encourage applicants to apply as early as possible.
 Candidates will be informed of the results of their application by the
 second week of May (at the latest).
 Registration deadline: 11 May 2012.
