SuperComputing


ABOUT

Date: 30th December 2017
Venue: LT 201
Reporting Time: 8am
Time: 9am-5pm

Supercomputer system enables to run programs at a high speed by performing a calculation in parallel using multiple CPUs. There are several different forms of parallel computing: bit-level, instruction-level, data, and task parallelism. Parallelism has been employed for many years, mainly in high-performance computing, but interest in it has grown lately due to the physical constraints preventing frequency scaling. Parallel computers can be roughly classified according to the level at which the hardware supports parallelism. Concurrent programming languages, libraries, APIs, and parallel programming models have been created for programming parallel computers. These can generally be divided into classes: shared memory, distributed memory, or shared distributed memory. The rise of consumer GPUs has led to support for compute kernels, either in graphics APIs, in dedicated APIs (such as OpenCL), or in other language extensions.

CONTENT

Objectives

  • Tools and techniques based on the latest available HPC platforms
  • Enable participants to quickly get started with writing their high performance codes
  • Provide hands­-on experience in parallel programming. These special sessions will provide the rich hands­-on experience with various languages and tools covered in the lectures.
  • They comprise a brief introduction to the programming assignments, followed by independent work periods. To help with the assignments, teaching assistants will be available in person and via the web.
  • Present case studies from different application domains.

By the end of the workshop, participants will:
  • Be exposed to computational thinking skills for accelerating applications in science and engineering.
  • Understand the most important architectural performance considerations for developing parallel applications.
  • Be able to design algorithms that are appropriate for accelerators.
  • Engage computing accelerators on science and engineering breakthroughs.

Target audience
Anyone who want to learn developing exciting applications for parallel processors, as well as those who want to develop programming tools and future implementations for these processors:
  • Students, Faculty and Researchers from Academic Institutes
  • Researchers from Govt. Research Organizations
  • Engineers / Researchers from Industry

Prerequisites
