Location The workshop will take place at the University College London, Cruciform Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT, England. Co-organizing Institutions Goals This workshop is organised by VI-HPS for the UK PRACE Advanced Training Centre to: give an overview of the VI-HPS programming tools suite explain the functionality of individual tools, and how to use them effectively offer hands-on experience and expert assistance using the tools On completion participants should be familiar with common performance analysis and diagnosis techniques and how they can be employed in practice (on a range of HPC systems). Those who prepared their own application test cases will have been coached in the tuning of their measurement and analysis, and provided optimization suggestions. Programme Overview Presentations and hands-on sessions are on the following topics: BSC tools for trace analysis and performance prediction Score-P instrumentation and measurement Scalasca automated trace analysis MAQAO performance analysis and optimization A brief overview of the capabilities of these and associated tools is provided in the VI-HPS Tools Guide. The workshop will be held in English and run from 09:30 to not later than 17:00 each day, with breaks for lunch and refreshments. There is no fee for participation, however, participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation. Classroom capacity is limited, therefore priority will be given to applicants with MPI, OpenMP and hybrid OpenMP+MPI parallel codes already running on the workshop computer systems, and those bringing codes from similar systems to work on. Attendees will need to bring their own notebook computers (with SSH and X11 configured) and use (eduroam) wifi to connect to the workshop computer systems. Outline The workshop introduces tools that provide a practical basis for portable performance analysis of parallel application execution, covering both profiling and tracing. It will be delivered as a series of presentations with associated hands-on practical exercises using the UK's ARCHER Cray XC30 supercomputer. While analysis of provided example codes will be used to guide the class through the relevant steps and familiarise with usage of the tools, coaching will also be available to assist participants to analyse their own parallel application codes and may suggest opportunities for improving their execution performance and scalability.

  • HPC code optimization workshop @ LRZ

    21 - 22 June 2018

    HPC code optimization workshop @ LRZ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hpc-code-optimization-workshop-lrz          Contents In the ever-growing complexity of computer architectures, code optimization has become the main route to keep pace with hardware advancements and effectively make use of current and upcoming High Performance Computing systems. Have you ever asked yourself: Where does the performance of my application lay? What is the maximum speed-up achievable on the architecture I am using? Is my implementation matching the HPC objectives? In this workshop, we will answer these questions and provide a unique opportunity to learn techniques, methods and solutions on how to improve code, how to enable the new hardware features and how to use the roofline model to visualize the potential benefits of an optimization process.  We will begin with a description of the latest micro-processor architectures and how the developers can efficiently use modern HPC hardware, in particular the vector units via SIMD programming and AVX-512 optimization and the memory hierarchy. The attendees are then conducted along the optimization process by means of hands-on exercises and learn how to enable vectorization using simple pragmas and more effective techniques, like changing data layout and alignment. The work is guided by the hints from the Intel® compiler reports, and using Intel® Advisor. We provide also an N-body code, to support the described optimization solutions with practical hands-on. The course is a PRACE training event. Learning Goals Through a sequence of simple, guided examples of code modernization, the attendees will develop awareness on features of multi and many-core architecture which are crucial for writing modern, portable and efficient applications. A special focus will be dedicated to scalar and vector optimizations for the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, code-named Skylake, which is going to be utilized in the upcoming SuperMUC-NG machine at LRZ. The tutorial will have presentations and demo session. We will provide to the attendees access to Skylake processors and Intel® tools using VM instances provided by Google Cloud Platform.

  • Statistics for Biologists in R

    21 - 22 June 2018

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r This course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to generalised linear model analysis. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques. Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge [Raven](http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/docs/faq/raven/n5) account you will need to book or register your interest by linking [here](http://bioinfotraining.bio.cam.ac.uk/booking-form/?event-id=2534302&course-title=Statistics%20for%20Biologists%20in%20R).'' 2018-06-21 08:30:00 UTC 2018-06-22 16:00:00 UTC University of Cambridge Craik-Marshall Building, Cambridge, United Kingdom Craik-Marshall Building Cambridge United Kingdom CB2 3AR Bioinformatics University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training [] Graduate studentsPostdocs and Staff members from the University of CambridgeInstitutions and other external Institutions or individuals workshops_and_courses [] []
