  • Efficient Parallel Programming with GASPI @ HLRS

    3 - 4 Jul 2017

    Efficient Parallel Programming with GASPI @ HLRS https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/efficient-parallel-programming-with-gaspi-hlrs-26991bde-8894-4fac-b9db-ece9f7de8a65 Overview In this tutorial we present an asynchronous data flow programming model for Partitioned Global Address Spaces (PGAS) as an alternative to the programming model of MPI. GASPI, which stands for Global Address Space Programming Interface, is a partitioned global address space (PGAS) API. The GASPI API is designed as a C/C++/Fortran library and focused on three key objectives: scalability, flexibility and fault tolerance. In order to achieve its much improved scaling behaviour GASPI aims at asynchronous dataflow with remote completion, rather than bulk-synchronous message exchanges. GASPI follows a single/multiple program multiple data (SPMD/MPMD) approach and offers a small, yet powerful API (see also http://www.gaspi.de and http://www.gpi-site.com). GASPI is successfully used in academic and industrial simulation applications. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of GASPI. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. For further information and registration please visit the HLRS course page. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/547/ 2017-07-03 07:00:00 UTC 2017-07-04 13:30:00 UTC [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Message-passing Programming with MPI @ EPCC

    12 - 14 Jul 2017

    Message-passing Programming with MPI @ EPCC https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/message-passing-programming-with-mpi-epcc-504445a9-2e79-49c6-92e8-85899dc7f90b The world’s largest supercomputers are used almost exclusively to run applications which are parallelised using Message Passing. The course covers all the basic knowledge required to write parallel programs using this programming model, and is directly applicable to almost every parallel computer architecture. Parallel programming by definition involves co-operation between processes to solve a common task. The programmer has to define the tasks that will be executed by the processors, and also how these tasks are to synchronise and exchange data with one another. In the message-passing model the tasks are separate processes that communicate and synchronise by explicitly sending each other messages. All these parallel operations are performed via calls to some message-passing interface that is entirely responsible for interfacing with the physical communication network linking the actual processors together. This course uses the de facto standard for message passing, the Message Passing Interface (MPI). It covers point-to-point communication, non-blocking operations, derived datatypes, virtual topologies, collective communication and general design issues. The course is normally delivered in an intensive three-day format using EPCC’s dedicated training facilities. It is taught using a variety of methods including formal lectures, practical exercises, programming examples and informal tutorial discussions. This enables lecture material to be supported by the tutored practical sessions in order to reinforce the key concepts. This course is free to all academics.  Intended Learning Outcomes On completion of this course students should be able to: Understand the message-passing model in detail. Implement standard message-passing algorithms in MPI. Debug simple MPI codes. Measure and comment on the performance of MPI codes. Design and implement efficient parallel programs to solve regular-grid problems. Pre-requisite Programming Languages: Fortran, C or C++. It is not possible to do the exercises in Java.

    29 - 30 Jun 2017

    Introduction to Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF) @ HLRS https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/introduction-to-unified-parallel-c-upc-and-co-array-fortran-caf-hlrs-b4dc72b4-74bc-42fd-a21c-e6b3b078bd55 Overview 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 provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.

    Workshop HPC Methods for Engineering@Cineca https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/workshop-hpc-methods-for-engineering-cineca-08eef2c3-05ca-4815-96a8-4b8f780be47d Description: The event is intended to collect a set of experiences from nowaday professional figures, coming from industry as well as from research centers and academy, to show the off-the-shelf technologies and methodologies available using Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) applications in an HPC environment. More in detail we would like to show how tight can be today the relationship between HPC infrastructures and large scale applications involved in engineering product design and manufacturing. The interplay between computational platforms and engineering applications involves as a by-product parallel benchmarking and performance ranking, data intensive I/O applications, co-design of applications integrated with system-ware development, new solvers for massively parallel application, remote and parallel large scale visualization.   This three days event is divided into this main topics: - pre-processing: cad import and cleaning, meshing using commercial and open-source applications. - computing: CFD, FEM, Multi-Physics, Optimization - post-processing: data analysis and visualization using desktop and remote visualization facilities AGENDA   Topics: Industrial and academic large scale applications and use cases, data analytics applications for engineering and manufacturing. Target audience: Academic and industrial researchers, managers which use / are planning to use HPC systems for CAE applications. This is not a training course on how to use specific CAE software.Grant: The lunch for the three days will be offered to all the participants and some grants are available. The only requirement to be eligible is to be not funded by your institution to attend the course and working or living in an institute outside the Milano area. The grant  will be 300 euros for students working and living outside Italy and 150 euros for students working and living in Italy. Some documentation will be required and the grant will be paid only after a certified presence of minimum 80% of the lectures. Further information about how to request the grant, will be provided at the confirmation of the course: about 3 weeks before the starting date. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/587/ 2017-06-19 06:00:00 UTC 2017-06-21 16:00:00 UTC [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
