“Summit is Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s next high performance supercomputer system that will be based on a many core/GPU hybrid architecture. In order to prepare OpenSHMEM for future systems, it is important to enhance its programming model to enable efficient utilization of the new hardware capabilities (e.g. massive multithreaded systems, accesses different type memories, next generation of interconnects, etc). This session will present recent advances in the area of OpenSHMEM extensions, implementations, and tools.”
As a reminder, the Stanford HPC Conference takes place next week, February 2-3, at Stanford, California. Hosted by the HPC Advisory Council, the conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. In addition, there will be a strong focus on […]
Argonne will host their 2015 ATPESC Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing for computational scientists. The event takes place August 2-14 in Chicago. “The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program to be held at the Pheasant Run Resort in suburban Chicago fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses.”
More than 100 exascale experts will gather in Barcelona this week for the Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC). Along with application leaders confronting diverse big data challenges, attendees will include members from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in algorithms, computer system architecture, operating systems, workflow middleware, compilers, libraries, languages and applications.
The Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Intel have renewed their collaboration research agreement at the Intel and BSC Exascale Laboratory in Barcelona. Now funded through 2017, the Intel and BSC Exascale Lab in Barcelona focuses on software and extraordinary levels of parallelism that will be needed to use future Intel-architecture-based supercomputers.
“While HPC is being pulled in this direction by external market forces, it became clear at the US Supercomputing Conference, SC14, held this year in New Orleans in late November, that the technologies underpinning technical high-performance computing are now changing in response. Paradoxically, the announcement of the largest US Government investment in technical supercomputing for many years will transform business computing.”
“The end of Dennard scaling has made all computing power limited, so that performance is determined by energy efficiency. With improvements in process technology offering little increase in efficiency innovations in architecture and circuits are required to maintain the expected performance scaling. The large scale parallelism and deep storage hierarchy of future machines poses programming challenges. Future programming systems must allow the programmer to express their code in a high-level, target-independent manner and optimize the target-dependent decisions of mapping available parallelism in time and space. This talk will discuss these challenges in more detail and introduce some of the technologies being developed to address them.”
