Dear HPC users,

we would like to draw your attention on the following PRACE Advanced Training Centre (PATC) events @ LRZ, Germany  in April/May 2017:

PRACE PATC Course: Advanced Topics in High Performance Computing

Date: Monday, April 3, 2017 - Thursday, April 6, 2017, 9:00-18:00
Registration deadline: March 20, 2017
Lecturers: Dr. R. Bader, Dr. S. Mendez, Dr. V. Weinberg (LRZ), Dr.-Ing. J. Eitzinger, Dr. M. Wittmann (RRZE)
Topics: Processor-specific optimisation, Parallel I/O with MPI I/O, tuning of I/O on LRZ's HPC systems, I/O libraries,  Intel Xeon Phi programming, PGAS programming

NEW Workshop @ LRZ:
PRACE PATC Course: HPC code optimisation workshop

Date: Thursday, May 4, 2017, 9:00-17:00

Registration deadline: April 20, 2017

Lecturers: Dr. Fabio Baruffa, Dr. Luigi Iapichino (Intel Parallel Computing Centre @ LRZ)

Abstract: The workshop is organised as a compact course on techniques and methods, focused on code improvement and exploration of the latest Intel processor features, in particular the vector units. During this optimisation process, the attendees will learn how to enable vectorisation using simple pragmas and more effective techniques, like changing data layout and alignment. This work is guided by the hints from the Intel compiler reports, and using Intel Advisor. The outline of the workshop includes: basics on modern computer architectures, optimisation process and vectorisation, Intel Advisor. We provide also an N-body code, to support the described optimisation solutions with practical examples.

Please also pass this course announcement to other interested colleagues.
