May 22 -- In this three day intensive event participants will focus on programming and tuning techniques for modern multi- and many-core processors with a particular focus on the Intel® Many Integrated Core architecture. Topics will be presented at an advanced level and will include structuring code to enable SIMD/vectorization, efficient usage of register, cache and memory hierarchies, use of multi-threading techniques to maximize resource utilization, data locality considerations on multi-socket NUMA nodes, and inter-node communication. Intel specialists will introduce the Intel® MIC architecture and the Intel programming environment, and will delve into greater detail of the use of multi- and many-core programming techniques. Demonstrations and hands-on sessions will be integrated throughout the course to illustrate the topics in greater depth, and user case studies will highlight real-world experiences in optimising scientific (HPC) codes on the Intel® MIC architecture.
Dates: 21st – 23rd June 2012
Location: Swiss National Supercomputing Centre, Lugano, Switzerland
Registration: To apply for a place please go to here (http://survey.ipb.ac.rs/index.php?s...)
Registration deadline: 11th May 2012.
The school is offered free of charge to students and academics residing in PRACE member states, and lunches, coffee breaks and an evening dinner event will be provided. Please note that a sound knowledge of C, C++ or Fortran is a pre-requisite for this course. Attendance is limited to 30 places, and selection of participants will be based on demonstrated understanding of computational science and high-performance computing and experience with at least one of MPI, OpenMP, or multi-core programming. Registration closes Friday 11th May 2012, but we encourage applicants to apply as early as possible. Candidates will be informed of the results of their application by the second week of May (at the latest).

Today at the International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzing, Germany, Jack Dongarra presented on a proposed benchmark that could carry a bit more weight than its older Linpack companion. The high performance conjugate gradient (HPCG) concept takes into account new architectures for new applications, while shedding the floating point....
Not content to let the Tianhe-2 announcement ride alone, Intel rolled out a series of announcements around its Knights Corner and Xeon Phi products--all of which are aimed at adding some options and variety for a wider base of potential users across the HPC spectrum. Today at the International Supercomputing Conference, the company's Raj....

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.

For all the progress we've made in IT over the last 50 years, there's one area of life that has steadfastly eluded the grasp of computers: understanding human language. Now, researchers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) are utilizing a Hadoop cluster on its Longhorn supercomputer to move the state of the art of language processing a little bit further.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/15/2013 | Bull | “50% of HPC users say their largest jobs scale to 120 cores or less.” How about yours? Are your codes ready to take advantage of today’s and tomorrow’s ultra-parallel HPC systems? Download this White Paper by Analysts Intersect360 Research to see what Bull and Intel’s Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming can do for your codes.
