Upcoming PRACE Courses at LRZ

There are still free places for the following PRACE courses at LRZ:

PRACE Course: Advanced Topics in High Performance Computing

Date: Monday, March 18 - Thursday, March 21, 2019, 9:00-17:00
Location: LRZ
Lecturers: R. Bader, S. Mendez, V. Weinberg (LRZ), J. Eitzinger (RRZE), Andrey Semin (Intel)
Registration deadline extended until 10 Mar 2019!

Topics: Processor-specific optimization, parallel I/O with MPI IO, Tuning I/O on LRZ's HPC systems, I/O profiling: Darshan tool, scientific data libraries: HDF5, scalable I/O library: SIONlib, PGAS programming with coarray Fortran and Unified Parallel C.

We are happy to announce that during the course Andrey Semin (Intel) will give a special public lecture about the Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake) processor architecture (Hörsaal, H.E.009).

This lecture will be devoted to the Intel Xeon Scalable (codenamed Skylake) processor that powers the brand new LRZ supercomputer: SuperMUC-NG. The presentation will cover details about Skylake core microarchitecture and Xeon uncore design. Additionally, the lecture will provide details about SuperMUC-NG compute node design and the fabric system architecture.

PRACE Workshop: HPC code optimisation workshop

Date: Monday, May 20 - Wednesday, May  22, 2019, 9:00-17:00
Location: LRZ
Lecturers: Dr. Fabio Baruffa (Intel), Dr. Mathias Gerald (LRZ), Dr. Luigi Iapichino (LRZ)

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • Where does the performance of my application lay?
  • What is the maximum speed-up achievable on the architecture I am using?
  • Is my implementation matching the HPC objectives?

In this workshop, we will answer these questions and provide a unique opportunity to learn techniques, methods and solutions on how to improve code, how to enable the new hardware features and how to use the roofline model to visualize the potential benefits of an optimization process.

PRACE Course: Deep Learning and GPU programming workshop

Date: Monday, June 3 - Thursday, June 6, 2019, 9:00-17:00
Location: LRZ
Lecturer: Dr. Momme Allalen, Dr. Juan Durillo Barrionuevo, Dr. Yu Wang, Dr. Volker Weinberg (LRZ)

Summary: This new 4-days PRACE workshop offered for the first time at LRZ combines lectures about fundamentals of Deep Learning for Multiple Data Types and Multi-GPUs with lectures about Accelerated Computing with CUDA C/C++ and OpenACC.

The workshop is co-organized by LRZ and NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) for the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE).
