Upcoming courses: Node-Level Performance Engineering, Basic and Advanced Parallel Programming
We still have free places for the following training events at LRZ offered in collaboration with the Regional Computing Centre Erlangen (RRZE) and the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE):
PRACE Course: Node-Level Performance Engineering
Date: Wednesday, February 20 - Thursday, February 21, 2019, 9:00 - 17:00
Registration deadline: Feb 10, 2019 (extended deadline!!)
Lecturers: Dr.-Ing. Jan Eitzinger, Dr. habil. Georg Hager (RRZE)
Topics: 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.
