GCOE Dresden at the SC17

The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC17) in Denver (Colorado, USA) is the most important conference in the field of high-performance computing (HPC) and will take place from 12 to 17 November 2017. The GCOE partners ZIH and the HZDR will present their know-how on the topics of HPC, Data Intensive Computing as well as Grid and Cloud Computing in talks, tutorials and discussions.

In addition to current research work and software developments, activities in the field of Big Data and data analysis will be presented. The two main topics are online performance analysis and analysis of applications’ I/O behavior. At the ZIH booth, visitors can try out the interactive online analysis prototype Vampir Live and experience new I/O analysis capabilities of Vampir. In particular, the I/O behavior of applications is becoming a bottleneck on the way to exascale high-performance computers. Novel I/O systems based on non-volatile memory technologies address this bottleneck. Together with the EU Horizon2020 project NEXTGenIO, the I/O analysis capabilities of the tools Score-P and Vampir have been significantly enhanced. The online analysis approach presents strategies for dealing with limited I/O capacities on the tool side as well.

Highlighted events

If you want to know more about GPU Hackathons to benefit from the experiences we and other organizers have had over the past hackathons, visit the Workshop on Education for High Performance Computing. The agenda  will probably be released on the workshop website.

Get into accelerator programming with the Fourth Workshop on Accelerator Programming Using Directives WACCPD, which is co-organized by Guido Juckeland from the HZDR.

Guido also will be part of the OpenACC BoF and the OpenACC User Group Meeting.

Ronny Tschüter et. al from our ZIH will present an LLVM Instrumentation Plug-In for Score-P.

The Hands-On Practical Hybrid Parallel Application Performance Engineering will show you how to work with the different performance tools from the Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS) by hands-on exercises with Scalasca, Vampir, and TAU.

To see other contributions, check the TU Dresden page. To get in contact you also can visit our ZIH booth @ booth 1881. Here, you can check out our performance tools or ask us about Machine Learning, BigData (ScaDs), NextGenIO, Energy Efficiency and performance related issues.
