images requested for annual CASC brochure

Posted by on Monday, 31 March, 2014

The time has come again to gather images for the annual CASC brochure. CASC is the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation, and GT is a member institution. We use the brochure in our advocacy efforts at the funding agencies and in D.C. Previous brochures are online at http://casc.org/research-publications.

If you have something you would be interested in sharing, please let me know. Below is some text from the CASC regarding what they are looking for.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of CASC and we want to recognize that milestone in the new brochure. If you have historical pictures, scientific visualizations and/or stories that can help us illustrate how CASC and HPC have evolved over the years, please start gathering those now. We will set up a website soon where you can upload your images and text. We hope to have everything we need by June 1, 2014.

As always, we are looking for high-quality images and stories that illustrate the impact of HPC and related technologies. The more we have the better, but we are especially interested in images and stories about research and accomplishments in Energy, Health and Medicine, Industrial Innovation, Environment and Natural Resources, Matter and the Universe, Education and Outreach, and Big Data. More information about how to upload your images and text will be sent shortly. The deadline will be earlier this year: June 15, 2014.

Xeon Phi SW Developer Training – Atlanta – April 3rd

Posted by on Tuesday, 25 March, 2014

This one-day training, held in Atlanta on Thursday, April 3rd, will provide software developers the foundation needed for modernizing their code to take advantage of parallel architectures found in both the Intel® Xeon® processor and the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor.

The session will cover:
– An overview of parallel programming frameworks and optimization guidelines for multi-core CPUs (Intel® Xeon®) and many-core coprocessors (Intel® Xeon Phi™)
– Discussions about three layers of parallelism: SIMD, Threads, Cluster environment
– Tips for quick porting/development of HPC software applications
– Real-life examples of code and optimization techniques
– Hardware solution and corresponding software implementations, APIs, and framework
