MPCDF will again organize an advanced HPC workshop for developers and users of the MPG and of the EU Centre of Excellence NOMAD from Tuesday, November 22nd until Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022, with an additional hands-on day (participation is optional and by application) on Thursday, November 24th. If the pandemic permits, we will have the hands-on day in presence in Garching and the lectures in a hybrid fashion onsite and online. 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 the MPCDF and to be already familiar with accessing, building and running their codes there.

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

The lectures will be given by members of the application group of the MPCDF, together with experts from Intel and Nvidia. Registration is open until November 12th. Applicants for the hands-on day are kindly asked to register as early as possible and to prepare a representative test case for their code on Raven (ideally the test can be run on a single Raven node, either GPU-accelerated or CPU-only) already in advance of the workshop. Assistance by MPCDF is provided on request.
