DEISA/PRACE Spring School:
Tools and Techniques for Extreme Scalability

EPCC, Edinburgh, Scotland
Tuesday 29 March - Thursday 31 March 2011

EPCC and ICHEC are organising the DEISA/PRACE Spring School to be held in Edinburgh on 29-31 March 2011. This three-day event is based around a series of invited lectures and associated hands-on practical sessions, and will cover new languages, programming paradigms and tools for extreme scalability. All techniques to be covered are applicable to a wide range of HPC architectures, and attendees will be able to try them out in practice on the UK's national supercomputer, HECToR, which is the largest Cray XE6 system in Europe.

The school will comprise a number of sessions, most running in two parallel streams, covering the following topics:

Tue AM:
Using the Cray XE6

Tue PM:
GPU Programming with CUDA
Advanced XE6 Libraries

Parallel Programming with Coarray Fortran
The Scalasca Performance Analysis Toolset

High Performance Parallel Programming with Unified Parallel C
Hybrid MPI/OpenMP Programming

Attendance is free for all EU academics. Limited support is available from DEISA for travel and accommodation costs for a small number of attendees.
