Practical Programming Models and Skills on INTEL Xeon Phi for Scientific Research Engineers

Europe/Bucharest
IICT, Sofia, Bulgaria

IICT, Sofia, Bulgaria

Description

The training school is organized by NCSA in assistance with Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and Bayncore. This is a follow up of the series of training events at NCSA that will focus on training practical skills by demonstrations on how to test performance scaling on Xeon Phi of a few project codes.

The event targets the software engineers from the previous events and plans to train the skills already obtained by those via demonstrating of how these are applied in a number of case studies whose various modes’ performance will be scaled on the NCSA heterogeneous cluster Avitohol.
