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…

Profiling – Code Clinic Session

May 7, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Kerckhoff – Charles E. Young Grand Salon, 308 Westwood Plaza
Los Angeles, 90095 United States

Optimization and parallel scalability of software are essential for High performance computing. The Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, and the National Aeronautical Space Agency support an ecosystem of “leadership class” computing facilities that include several of the world’s most advanced supercomputers as well as high-end visualization and data analysis resources.  Access to these resources is freely available to those who can demonstrate that their research topic requires these resources and that their software can utilize these resources. The IDRE Pipeline program aims…
