PRACE PATC Course: Node-Level Performance Engineering @ LRZ

Dear HPC user,

We want to invite you to participate in our PRACE PATC course on Node-Level Performance Engineering on Thursday, Nov 30 - Friday, Dec 1, 2017, 9:00 - 17:00 at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, Germany. The course is free of charge as it is sponsored through the PATC program of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE).

The lectures will be given by Prof. Gerhard Wellein and Dr. Georg Hager from the Regional Computing Centre of Erlangen (RRZE). The course is an extended version of the very popular regular SC/ISC tutorials by RRZE.

This course teaches performance engineering approaches on the compute node level. "Performance engineering" as we define it is more than employing tools to identify hotspots and bottlenecks. It is about developing a thorough understanding of the interactions between software and hardware. This process must start at the core, socket, and node level, where the code gets executed that does the actual computational work. Once the architectural requirements of a code are understood and correlated with performance measurements, the potential benefit of optimizations can often be predicted. We introduce a "holistic" node-level performance engineering strategy, apply it to different algorithms from computational science, and also show how an awareness of the performance features of an application may lead to notable reductions in power consumption.

For more information and registration, please see

Please also pass this course announcement to other interested colleagues.
