The purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts in the field to present their ideas that focus on various performance challenges, to foster learning and inspiration, and to provoke discussions and exchanges on the state-of-the-art in high-performance and parallel scientific computing.
The scientific program of Thursday, September 15, consists of six 45-minute talks, a series of lightning talks from young talents in HPC followed by a PhD poster session. The program will end with an engaging debate on the future of HPC, followed by an apero. Invited speakers are Gerhard Wellein (FAU Erlangen, Germany), Martin Schulz (Lawrence Livermore National Labs, USA), Sascha Hunold (TU Wien, Austria), Rudi Eigenmann (NSF and Purdue University, USA), Michael Resch (University of Stuttgart, Germany), Nicholas Holway (Novartis, Switzerland) and Gang Mu (Roche, Switzerland).
The presentations on Thursday, September 15, will focus on performance modeling, benchmarking, and analysis as well as the opportunities for achieving performance using accelerators, clouds, and future technologies.
Students in all stages of their PhD are encouraged to actively participate in the PhD Forum by submitting their research in the form of a poster, which will be reviewed by the SPEEDUP committee. If your doctoral school allows it, students with accepted posters may earn one ECTS for attending the workshop and tutorials and for participating in the PhD Forum.
Requirements for submission (a single PDF file): (1) Title, (2) Author (contact) information, (3) Summary of research objectives/early results (500 words maximum), (4) Topic area, (5) One to five keywords, (6) Poster draft (1 page max.).
Eligibility: PhD thesis must not have been defended by September 16, 2016.
On Friday, September 16, we organize two half-day tutorials on performance monitoring and reproducibility, given by ZIH TU Dresden, Germany and HPWC University Basel, Switzerland.
