PRACE Summer School: Taking the Most Out of Supercomputers
The main auditorium of CSC at Keilaranta 14, Espoo, Finland
29 August - 2 September 2011

In the PRACE Summer School the participants will learn advanced programming skills, which are necessary for getting the most out of the largest ("Tier-0") supercomputers.

The school will cover the following topics, addressed with lectures and related hands-on exercise ("lab") sessions.

- Advanced features of the message-passing interface
- Hybrid message passing + shared memory programming
- Using GPGPUs in high-performance systems - CUDA+MPI programming
- Performance analysis tools for massively parallel applications
- Using Python in high-performance computing
- Low-level (assembler) serial code optimization

In addition to these, four scientific case studies concerning using the top-end HPC systems to solve the most challenging problems will be presented by European top researchers

The exercises will be carried out on a brand new Cray XE6 system in PDC, Sweden as well as on CSC's Cray XT4/XT5 system Louhi.

Intermediate skills and experience in parallel programming

Free of charge
The school is free of charge but an application for participation is required. Morning and afternoon coffees will be served; lunches can be purchased at the local restaurants for 8-10 euros. The restaurants in the Otaniemi campus (Aalto University) are within a walking distance. The evening caterings (welcoming drinks, refreshments in the poster session and the dinner) will also be free of charge.

Registration by 01.08.2011 16:00.
The attendees (40 at maximum) of the school will be selected from the applications (which are filled in with the registration form, link above) basing on the order of registration and the background of the applicants.
The decisions of approval will be sent shortly after the registration has closed, on August 3 at the latest.
