Course 2013-Cray XE6(1) at HLRS, Stuttgart
|Course Cray XE6(1)
Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room),
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
||2013, Tuesday, April 16, 9:00 - Friday, April 19, 16:30
||Cray XE6/XC30 Optimization Workshop
HLRS installed HERMIT, a Cray XE6 system with AMD Interlagos processors
and a performance of 1 PFlop/s.
Currently, the system is extended by a Cray XC30 system.
We invite current and future users to participate in this special
course on porting applications to our Cray architectures.
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.
The first three days, specialists from Cray will support you in
your effort porting and optimizing your application on our Cray XE6/XC30.
On the fourth day, Georg Hager and Jan Treibig from RRZE will
present detailed information on optimizing codes
on the multicore AMD Interlagos and Intel Sandy Bridge processors.
This workshop provides scientific training in Computational Science,
and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.
HERMIT is available in Germany and Europe through this
1st day: 9:00-9:30 local registration, 9:30 - 17:30 course

HLRS is part of the
Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six
PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in
The mandate for the PATCs is as follows:
"The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced,
world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences."
This course is a PATC course, see also the PRACE Training
For participants from public research institutions in PRACE countries,
the course fee is sponsored through the PRACE PATC program.
