JUQUEEN Extreme Scaling Workshop 2016

JSC, Ausbildungsraum 1, building 16.3, R. 213a

JUQUEEN Extreme Scaling Workshops provide selected application teams an opportunity to scale their codes up to 1.8 million hardware threads via exclusive access to the entire Blue Gene/Q at JSC, with expert hardware, software and support personnel available to assist with running codes at this extreme scale.

Following the positive feedback from the 2015 workshop, we propose to have a three day workshop in 2016 with additional time available for performance analysis of large-scale executions and quantification of scaling inefficiencies.

Participation will be limited to a small number of application teams with codes that demonstrate good scaling potential, and where at least one team member will be physically present on-site for the workshop.

While we are particularly keen to support new application teams and codes, teams from previous extreme scaling workshops and High-Q Club members with application codes which have already demonstrated excellent scalability are not excluded if algorithmic or other changes will be investigated or the focus may be on improved file I/O, etc.

Participation is by invitation only, so please contact Dirk Brömmel ( or Brian Wylie ( with details of your code, its current scalability on Blue Gene/Q, and expected benefits from this opportunity to demonstrate extreme scalability. We will follow-up to refine proposals and confirm readiness, with selection continuing until available places are filled, therefore contact us as soon as possible if you are interested.
