Scientific Applications towards Exascale



950 rue de Saint-Priest 34097 MONTPELLIER FRANCE




EoCoE in partnership with PRACE organizes a workshop on Scientific Applications towards Exascale. The general topic of the first one-and-a-half days will be HPC scientific applications on new computing architectures with a specific focus on the Intel Xeon Phi Knight's Landing processor (KNL). This will prepare potential users for the KNL-based PRACE-PCP machine to be installed at CINES by that time. The last day will be dedicated to a hands-on session on this machine, where participants will be able to try porting their code and make first performance and energy measurements
