Scaling to Petascale Institute

Monday, June 26, 2017

Location: Elings Hall Room:  3250

CSC is hosting the Scaling to Petascale Institute to be held on June 26-30, 2017. The institute will be broadcasted via the web and participants will be able to verbally ask questions to the presenters through two-way video conferencing facilities. Participants will receive training accounts on the Blue Waters, NERSC and TACC systems. 

This institute is for people developing, modifying and supporting research projects who seek to enhance their knowledge and skills to scale software to petascale and emerging extreme scale computing systems.  Participants should have familiarity with Linux, programming in Fortran, C, C++, Python or similar language, and familiarity with MPI (message passing interface). There will be hands-on activities for many of the sessions.

Presentations will be made by faculty and professionals from Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), the Blue Waters project at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), Stony Brook University, and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).

The agenda will address the following topics:

  • MPI - Introduction and Advanced topics
  • OpenMP
  • Scaling, code profiling, and debugging
  • GPU programming
  • OpenACC
  • Phi programming
  • Software libraries
  • Parallel I/O
  • HDF5
  • Globus
  • Software engineering
