Hands-on Porting and Optimisation Workshop @ EPCC

3217 (EPCC UK)



The University of Edinburgh James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait RoadEdinburgh EH9 3FD

ARCHER, the UK's national supercomputing service, offers training in software development and high-performance computing to scientists and researchers across the UK. As part of our training service, and in conjunction with the easc2015 Exascale Applications and Software Conference, we will be running a 1 day ‘Hands-on Porting and Optimisation Workshop’ training session.

This 1-day workshop is a hands-on session aimed at:

  • New users to the ARCHER service, looking to port their code to ARCHER and explore its performance prior to an application for ARCHER time.
  • Current users of the ARCHER service, looking to improve aspects of their current codes performance e.g. scaling and/or IO.

Attendees will be assigned a technical advisor who will work closely with them throughout the day to help with running on ARCHER, using the tools and implementing improvements.

The workshop is open to anyone interested in using ARCHER, it is not restricted to current users. If you are not familiar with the system, we would encourage you to look at the on-line training material in advance of the workshop, at:

  • http://www.archer.ac.uk/training/course-material/online/index.php

to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from the day.  This material prepares you for the online ARCHER driving test which allows you to access the system with your own account and a time allocation.

As part of registration you will need to provide the following information:

  • Name of code
  • Current ARCHER user yes/no
  • What do you want to achieve on the day (e.g. improved performance)?

We encourage applications from small teams. Please register individually but note that you are part of a team when entering your code details.
