venue
Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Hörsaal, building 16.3, room 006
Target audience:
Managers, system administrators, and application programmers new to the field of high-performance computing (HPC) and interested in an introduction to HPC systems and parallel programming.
Contents:
This course will present the fundamental concepts, methods, and technologies of high-performance computing systems and the necessary parallel programming associated with it. After introducing the basic terminology and vocabulary, an overview about parallel computer architectures is given introducing shared memory, distributed memory, and hybrid computer systems including latest trends like many-core CPUs and hardware acceleration via GPUs. Next, the basics of parallel programming are explained including an introduction to message-passing and multi-threaded programming with the industry standards MPI and OpenMP. Finally, it describes the basics of debugging, performance analysis, and optimization of parallel programs. The presentation closes with a summary of issues and open research topics of high-performance computing for the next decade namely heterogeneity, reliability, power consumption, and extreme concurrency.
Prerequisites:
Basic knowledge in a sequential programming language like C, C++ or Fortran is helpful to better understand the examples presented in the 2nd half of the talk
Language:
The presentation material is in English. The presentation will be given in English or German language depending on the course final audience.
