PRACE Workshop: Programming and Optimizing the Intel Knights Landing Manycore Processor

This two days workshop is arranged together with PRACE, and will have instructors from Intel. The course focuses on programming and optimizing the Intel Knights Landing Manycore Processor. It addresses the Intel® Xeon Phi™, codenamed “Knights Landing (KNL)” architecture and how to best use it efficiently.  

Course: Introduction to OpenMP and MPI, 26 March 2018

  • Posted on: 24 January 2018
  • By: bbrydsoe

The purpose of this course is to give a short overview of the most important aspects of OpenMP and MPI. The first half of the day will be focused on OpenMP and the second half of the day on MPI. There will also be a part on how to use profiling tools (VTune) to optimize your code.

If you are only interested in either OpenMP or MPI, it is possible to just attend the relevant part of the course.

Please bring your own laptop if you wish to participate in the hands-ons.

Lunch and coffee/tea will be provided.

HPC2N Open House with Kebnekaise Celebration

High Performance Computing Center North cordially invites you to participate in the celebration of Kebnekaise, the latest HPC2N supercomputer system. The morning program offers a tutorial and the afternoon program includes presentations by scientists using Kebnekaise, a poster session, and the more formal celebration of Kebnekaise.

The procurement of Kebnekaise was made possible through a grant from both the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) and Umeå University.

Computational Chemistry - MD Simulations (NAMD)

This one day course is an introduction to Computational Chemistry and MD Simulations, with half of the time dedicated to running NAMD at HPC2N. There will be a hands-on.

Participation is free. Bring your laptop for the hands-on!

The hands-on will be done on HPC2N's systems, so you will need to have an account at HPC2N (or create one when added to the course project) in order to participate in that part.

Lunch and afternoon coffee will be provided.

  • By: admin

Version Control Workshop

A CodeRefinery Workshop in Umeå, in collaboration with HPC2N. The aim of this course is to demonstrate and familiarize the workshop participants with version control systems, specifically Git. Both introductory and more advanced topics will be covered. Research code is often developed in a collaborative setting, and we will discuss tools and workflows which facilitate this process. However, most of the content is also relevant to a single developer.

Date: 2017-10-16

Time: 09:00 - 17:00
