The European PRACE initiative has published a new Best Practice Guide for Intel Xeon Phi, Knights Landing Edition. “This best practice guide provides information about Intel’s MIC architecture and programming models for the Intel Xeon Phi co-processor in order to enable programmers to achieve good performance of their applications. The guide covers a wide range of topics from the description of the hardware of the Intel Xeon Phi co-processor through information about the basic programming models as well as information about porting programs up to tools and strategies how to analyze and improve the performance of applications.”
“CUDA C++ is just one of the ways you can create massively parallel applications with CUDA. It lets you use the powerful C++ programming language to develop high performance algorithms accelerated by thousands of parallel threads running on GPUs. Many developers have accelerated their computation- and bandwidth-hungry applications this way, including the libraries and frameworks that underpin the ongoing revolution in artificial intelligence known as Deep Learning.”
Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the eighth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 25- 30, 2017, in Boulder, Colorado.
The European PRACE organization is now accepting applications for the following expense-paid educational programs: The 2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences and the PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 program.
The SC17 conference is now accepting proposals for independently planned full- or half-day workshops. SC17 will be held Nov. 12-17 in Denver.
“As a bridge to that future, this two-week program fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses. The 2017 ATPESC program will be held at a new location from previous years, at the Q Center, one of the largest conference facilities in the Midwest, located just outside Chicago.”
“The PRACE Summer of HPC is an outreach and training program that offers summer placements at top High Performance Computing centers across Europe to late-stage undergraduates and early-stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and produce a report and a visualization or video of their results.”
The Penn State Institute for CyberScience (ICS) is hosting a series of free training workshops on high-performance computing techniques. These workshops are sponsored by the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). The first workshop will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m on Jan.17 in 118 Wagner Building, University Park.
Today SimScale launched the SimScale Academic Program which brings cloud-based CAE software into universities, schools, and classrooms around the world. “SimScale is a new-generation CAE platform that supports Structural Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, and Thermal Analysis. Students, Researchers, and Educators can now harness the power of the cloud to run engineering simulations on any laptop, anywhere.”
Today DDN announced that it has partnered with Synergy Solutions Management to offer organizations access to a first-of-its-kind facility in North America where users can plan, design and test video surveillance and high performance computing solutions and conduct training. The Synergy Innovations Lab, located near Vancouver, Canada, provides a fully-equipped testing lab that allows users to evaluate solutions within a mixed workload environment.
