This workshop helps HPC developers to better manage, debug and profile their code. One day is dedicated to GPU programming.

MPCDF organizes an advanced HPC workshop for users of the MPG and of the EU Center of Excellence NOMAD from Tuesday, November 22nd until Thursday, November 24th, 2022. We plan to give the lectures in a hybrid fashion, onsite and streamed online. The hands-on part will be onsite at the MPCDF in Garching if the pandemic situation permits. The main topics of the lectures are

  • Debugging and profiling of CPU and GPU codes
  • Porting codes to GPU-accelerated systems

As a prerequisite, we require participants to have an account for the HPC machines of MPCDF and are already familiar with accessing, building and running their codes. The workshop is open to code developers of the NOMAD CoE, who will specifically learn about GPUs as the main building blocks for (pre-)exascale systems and how to develop and optimize codes on such platforms.

If you are interested in bringing in your own code to work with the experts and to apply the techniques and tools taught in the lectures, please apply by adding a short description of your code and specific goals in the registration form. The entire Thursday, November 24th is dedicated to working on the selected code projects.

The workshop will be given by members of the application group of the MPCDF together with experts from Intel and Nvidia. The registration is open and can be accessed via the link on the left. The deadline for registration for the lectures is November 12th, for pure online participation, you can register until November 18th.

The applicants for the hands-on day are asked to test the building of the code on Raven and to prepare a representative test case for the problem that they want to inspect (ideally the test can be run on a single Raven node, either GPU or CPU) in advance of the workshop. Assistance by MPCDF is provided on request.
