Advanced HPC Workshop, November 2020, MPCDF, Garching



This workshop addresses PhD students and PostDocs which started to work on the MPCDF's High Performance Computing Resources and want to learn some of the debugging and profiling tools in more detail. It is not a basic introduction to the usage of the systems. The workshop consists of lectures and hands-on sessions to deepen the learned topics.
Some of the topics that are to be taught:
  • Software Engineering Tools like git and gitlab
  • Parallel debugging strategies
  • Serial and parallel profiling with tools ranging from simple timing up to Intel Vtune, MPI Trace Analyzer and Scalasca
  • Tuning for actual hardware
  • GPU programming


The course will take place on November 23 - 26 and will only be held online due to the unclear Corona situation.

Target Audience

  • Computational scientists who run HPC codes on MPCDF's compute resources
  • PhD students and PostDocs who have basic knowledge of how to access the systems and build and run codes there but want to get a deeper insight in debugging and profiling of HPC codes
  • Scientist who think about or are on the way of porting their code to GPUs


Please register until 31st of October over the registration website.


  • Application support group of MPCDF
  • Intel and Nvidia engineers
