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 http://survey.ipb.ac.rs/index.php?sid
=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.
