SC14 #HPCMatters – Celebrating the Applications

David Lecomber, CEO, Allinea

The doors will soon open, the curtains will rise – and what really #HPCMatters will shine in the floodlights of New Orleans. It will be the applications of HPC that define this SC conference – where the life/business/world-impacting results are found. Applications are the sharp end of the mission. But who or what lies behind application successes?

Today Allinea Software announced it is providing access to its software development tools to organizations that have been awarded Intel Parallel Computing Center status as part of the Intel sponsored code-modernization initiatives.

Leveraging Parallelism on Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors and Multicore Processors

3e

With 69 contributors from academia and industry, a new book shows how to leverage parallelism on processors and coprocessors with the same programming, providing detailed illustrations of effective ways to combine Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors with multicore processors.

Slidecast: Energy-efficient Computation

mark

“A crazy idea was born at ISC14 while answering questions about the new energy metrics in Allinea Performance Reports and Allinea MAP – could the information in these reports show us an easy way to increase energy efficiency without having to change the program? The idea was to use CPU frequency scaling to run memory-bound jobs at a lower clock frequency. In Lazy Energy Efficiency Challenge One, I found that on a synthetic benchmark I could increase the iterations per watt by 19% on a memory-bound code.”

Why Create a New Programming Language with Chapel?

Brad Chamberlain

“Scalable parallel programmers (and desktop parallel programmers, for that matter) would benefit greatly from a productive new language supporting better syntax, features and optimizations than today’s parallel notations offer. HPC has a rich set of lower-level technologies upon which to build and numerous failed parallel languages from which to learn.”
