This workshop is an on-demand training event of PRACE-5IP on energy efficiency tools.

In the context of the PRACE-3IP Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) project on on “Whole System Design for Energy Efficient HPC”, Atos/Bull (along with E4 - Italia and Maxeller - UK) developed a set of tool for energy monitoring and management, ported a set of scientific computing applications to its KNL architecture and deployed a pilot system at GENCI/CINES Computing Centre, Montpellier.

The workshop  will take place at CINES Montpellier, from Thursday 11 October noon to Friday 12 October. There will technical presentation on Thursday afternoon, and a hands on workshop / hackathon on Friday. Participants can choose to attend part or all of the workshop.

The following benchmark code where ported by Atos/Bull:

  • BQCD;
  • NEMO;
  • Quantum Espresso;
  • SPECFEM3D.

Along with the full Accelerated benchmark suit UEABS by PRACE-4IP work-package 7 on Code Enabling.

Developers of numerical applications with general interest in energy efficiency tools are invited to participate in this training event. No previous background in energy efficiency tools is required.

Lecturers will be leading experts from Atos/Bull, CINES and PRACE users of these tools. All participants will be provided with access to the Atos/Bull KNL pilot system, and could run energy profiling of their codes (code should be provided before the workshop, for analysis and security issues).

The training will start on Thursday 11 October, 1pm and end at Friday 12 October 2018 at 4pm.
