Supercomputing for Everyone Series: Performance Tuning Summer School

August 17, 2015 @ 8:00 am - August 21, 2015 @ 2:00 pm
5628 Math Science Building, UCLA

From a user perspective, supercomputers are more complicated to program and handle than an ordinary desktop workstation. Unfortunately this leads to parallel programs that do not necessarily satisfy the performance expectations of the users. Such unexpected performance results can have many reasons. Basic knowledge on performance modeling, prediction and verification, as taught in this summer school, is needed by users to formulate and verify their performance expectation. The goals for this class are: - Motivating the need for performance considerations…
