Call for Proposals:
SuperMUC Extreme Scaling Workshop
Leibniz Rechenzentrum Garching
July 9-11, 2013
Deadline for proposal submission: June 1st, 2013
In July 2013 LRZ is going to organize a three day workshop on extreme
code scaling. The goal of this workshop is to enable scaling of user
implemented software on SuperMUC, the 3 PetaFLOP/s machine at LRZ.
Users can submit their own software as candidates for the workshop, and
extreme scaling experts from IBM, Intel and LRZ will be working
together with the users to run the software on up to 130,000 cores of
SuperMUC, trying to break the magic limit of one Petaflop/s application
performance. From the applicants, the most promising software packages
will be selected.
The main requirement to participate is: Your code already scales up to
Users with already existing LRZ or PRACE accounts should use their user
account to generate the necessary scaling plots up to 4,000 cores. New
users should contact Ferdinand Jamitzky (Jamitzky at lrz.de) for more
information on how to obtain a test account.
Additionally to the scaling plot, please send us the following
Contact Data: Name, Affiliation, e-mail, phone
Name of Software and short description including scientific motivation
Assurance that the code already scales up to 4000 cores (scaling plot,
can also be from runs on a machine other than SuperMUC).
Time needed for a single test run (< 0.5 h)
Memory usage per core (< 1.6 GB)
Hard disk data usage (< 1 TB)
Other code requirements (libraries, I/O, compiler versions, etc)
After submitting a proposal, the participants will obtain a test
account with a total time budget of 50,000 cpu-hours for scaling tests
and have to show that their code scales up to 4 islands on SuperMUC (1
Island consists of 8192 Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge cores). They have to
present a scaling plot that shows the scaling of the computing time
versus number of cores to up to 32000 cores.
From the results the participants show during the test runs, 16
projects will be selected for additional runs on the whole available
system during the workshop. The selected candidates will also have the
opportunity to present their results during a Mini-Symposium at the
ParCo2013 Conference in September in Garching.
At the same time the
PRACE PATC Course: Introduction to SuperMUC- the new Petaflop
Supercomputer at LRZ
takes place at LRZ and you are welcome to register for both.
Proposal submission deadline: June 1, 2013
Machine Access for preparations of scaling plot: latest June 5, 2013
Test accounts will be given immediately after submission of the project
Scaling Plots for up to 32,000 cores: July 1, 2013
Workshop: July 9-11, 2013
