Parallel Programming Workshops and Programming Language Courses 2012


Abstract
The aim of these workshops is to give people who already have some programming experience an introduction into the numerics of linear solvers, computational fluid dynamics, and the basics of parallel programming. The focus is on iterative solvers, the programming models MPI and OpenMP, domain decomposition, load balancing and parallel numerics. Language support is given for Fortran, C and C++.
Message Passing with MPI is the major programming model on large distributed-memory systems in high-performance computing. OpenMP is dedicated to shared memory systems.
Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test linear solver programming and to understand what the basic constructs of MPI and OpenMP are meant to do.

Content Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
Abstract The course deals with current numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics. The emphasis is placed on explicit finite volume methods for the compressible Euler equations. Moreover outlooks on implicit methods, the extension to the Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence modelling are given. Additional topics are classical numerical methods for the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, Aeracoustics and high order numerical methods for the solution of systems of partial differential equations. The last day is dedicated to parallelization of explicit and implicit solvers.
Hands-on sessions will manifest the contents of the lectures. The emphasis of these session is put on the application of CFD codes, especially on grid generation, visualization and the interpretation of results. Furthermore the implementation of algorithms presented in the lectures points up the general structure of CFD codes.
The course is organized by the HLRS, the IAG and the University of Kassel. It is based on the course "Numerical Gasdynamics" held at the IAG which has been awarded the "Landeslehrpreis (prize for excellence in teaching) Baden-Württemberg 2003" (held at Uni. Stuttgart, under auspices of the BMBF project NUSS, contract 08NM227).

Abstract HLRS installed HERMIT, a Cray XE6 system with AMD Interlagos processors and a performance of 1 PFlop/s. We strongly encourage you to port your applications to the new architecture as early as possible. To support such effort we invite current and future users to participate in special Cray XE6 Optimization Workshops. With this course, we will give all necessary information to move applications from the current NEC SX-9, the Nehalem cluster, or other systems to HERMIT. HERMIT provides our users with a new level of performance. To harvest this potential will require all our efforts. We are looking forward to working with our users on these opportunities.
Monday-Wednesday, specialists from Cray will support you in your effort porting and optimizing your application on our Cray XE6.
On Thursday, Georg Hager and Jan Treibig from RRZE will present detailed information on optimizing codes on the multicore AMD Interlagos processor.

Content OpenACC Programming for Parallel Accelerated Supercomputers.
Abstract This workshop will cover the programming environment of the Cray XK6 hybrid supercomputer, which combines multicore CPUs with GPU accelerators (http://www.cray.com/Products/XK6). Attendees will learn about the directive-based OpenACC programming model (http://www.openacc-standard.org), whose multi-vendor support allows users to portably develop applications for parallel accelerated supercomputers.
The workshop will also demonstrate how to use the Cray Programming Environment tools to identify CPU application bottlenecks, facilitate the OpenACC porting, provide accelerated performance feedback and to tune the ported applications. The Cray scientific libraries for accelerators will be presented, and interoperability of OpenACC directives with these and with CUDA will be demonstrated. Through application case studies and tutorials, users will gain direct experience of using OpenACC directives in realistic applications.
Users may also bring their own codes to discuss with Cray specialists or begin porting.

Content Introduction to Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF)
Abstract Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) is a new model for parallel programming. Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF) are PGAS extensions to C and Fortran. UPC and CAF are language extensions to C and Fortran. Parallelism is part of the language. PGAS languages allow any processor to directly address memory/data on any other processors. Parallelism can be expressed more easily compared to library based approaches as MPI. This course gives an introduction to this novel approach of expressing parallelism. Hands-on sessions (in UPC and/or CAF) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of PGAS languages.

Content Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
Abstract The course deals with current numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics. The emphasis is placed on explicit finite volume methods for the compressible Euler equations. Moreover outlooks on implicit methods, the extension to the Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence modelling are given. Additional topics are classical numerical methods for the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, Aeracoustics and high order numerical methods for the solution of systems of partial differential equations. The last day is dedicated to parallelization of explicit and implicit solvers.
Hands-on sessions will manifest the contents of the lectures. The emphasis of these session is put on the application of CFD codes, especially on grid generation, visualization and the interpretation of results. Furthermore the implementation of algorithms presented in the lectures points up the general structure of CFD codes.
The course is developed by the HLRS, the Institute of Aerodynamics and Gasdynamics (IAG, University of Stuttgart), the University of Kassel, the German Research School for Simulation Sciences (GRS, RWTH Aachen), and the Institute of Aerodynamics (AIA, RWTH Aachen). It is based on the course "Numerical Gasdynamics" held at the IAG which has been awarded the "Landeslehrpreis (prize for excellence in teaching) Baden-Württemberg 2003" (held at Uni. Stuttgart, under auspices of the BMBF project NUSS, contract 08NM227). The course is organized by GRS and AIA, RWTH Aachen.

Content Cray XE6 Optimization Workshop
Abstract HLRS installed HERMIT, a Cray XE6 system with AMD Interlagos processors and a performance of 1 PFlop/s. We strongly encourage you to port your applications to the new architecture as early as possible. To support such effort we invite current and future users to participate in special Cray XE6 Optimization Workshops. With this course, we will give all necessary information to move applications from the current NEC SX-9, the Nehalem cluster, or other systems to HERMIT. HERMIT provides our users with a new level of performance. To harvest this potential will require all our efforts. We are looking forward to working with our users on these opportunities.
Monday-Wednesday, specialists from Cray will support you in your effort porting and optimizing your application on our Cray XE6.
On Thursday, Georg Hager and Jan Treibig from RRZE will present detailed information on optimizing codes on the multicore AMD Interlagos processor.
HERMIT is available in Germany and Europe through this link.

Content Introduction to Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF)
Abstract Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) is a new model for parallel programming. Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF) are PGAS extensions to C and Fortran. UPC and CAF are language extensions to C and Fortran. Parallelism is part of the language. PGAS languages allow any processor to directly address memory/data on any other processors. Parallelism can be expressed more easily compared to library based approaches as MPI. This course gives an introduction to this novel approach of expressing parallelism. Hands-on sessions (in UPC and/or CAF) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of PGAS languages. (This course has the same content as the course in spring.)

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 from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
NO-SHOW: 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 for them).
Limit 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).
Handouts 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 EPCC 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.
