Rice University to Host HPC Summer Institute

The Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology at Rice University will nost the fourth annual week-long High-Performance Computing Summer Institute on June 4 – 8, 2012.

Each day will consist of in-class instructions by leading experts covering MPI, OpenMP, Pthreads, OpenCL, CUDA, and OpenACC, as well as performance analysis and tuning of parallel programs using open-source tools including Rice’s own HPCToolkit and Argonne National Lab’s Jumpshot. Each topic will be supported by hands-on exercises performed on Rice’s high performance systems including the DAVinCI Westmere cluster (with NVIDIA Fermi GPGPUs), the BlueBioU POWER7 cluster and on a new BlueGene/P system.

For the analytics crowd, the Ken Kennedy Institute will also host the 2012 Big-data Summer Institute.
