Posted on 8 December 2011

The PRACE Winter School is an intense, 5 day, graduate level course in high performance computing.

The school will be focused on hybrid programming for the best exploitation of massively parallel architectures. The facility available at CINECA for exercises is called PLX and is the largest public GPU cluster in Europe. It is made of 274 compute nodes, each containing 2 NVIDIA® Tesla® M2070 and 2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) Westmere six-core E5645 processors.The school is aimed at PRACE users, final year master students, PhD students, and young researchers in computational sciences and engineering, with different backgrounds, interested in applying the emerging technologies on high performance computing to their research. The school will cover the following topics:



  • Massively parallel architectures: BlueGene, hybrid clusters
  • Accelerators (NVIDIA GPU, Intel MIC)
  • Advanced MPI
  • Hybrid programming with OpenMP
  • Hybrid programming with CUDA
  • Towards new hybrid solutions with MPI.
