Course 2011-Cray XE6 at HLRS, Stuttgart
|Course Cray XE6
Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room),
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
||2011, Wednesday, February 2, 9:00 - Friday, February 4, 16:30
||Cray XE6 Optimization Workshop
In Dec. 2010, HLRS has installed a first
Cray XE6 system with a performance of 10 TFlop/s.
The final XE6 system with a performance of 1 PFlop/s is expected to
Be operational in Q3/2011.
We strongly encourage you to use the already existing small system to
port your applications to the new architecture as early as possible.
To support such first effort we invite important users to participate
in a special course Cray XE6 Optimization Workshop.
With this course, we will give all necessary information
to move applications from the current NEC SX-9 or Nehalem
cluster to the upcoming Petaflop system.
The Cray XE6 installed in 2011 will provide our users with a new
level of performance. To harvest this potential will require all our efforts.
We are looking forward to working with you on these opportunities.

| Cancelation policy
|| If you cannot come to the course, please
send an email to the organizer as soon as possible.
This would allow us to accept additional participants

Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any
reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops
(because it is to expensive to produce unused copies of the slides
|| maximum of
42 participants in Stuttgart and Kassel,
35 in Dresden and Aachen,
34 in Garching,
26 in Jülich,
20 an der TUHH
(according to the seats in the rooms).
|| Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the
Training and Education Centre,
Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.
If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards
MPI-2.2 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP 3.0 (about 8 Euro).
Most material of the course (including the audio information)
can also be viewed in the
ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
