  • ELIXIR-EXCELERATE HPC Train-the-Researcher

    6 - 7 April 2017

    Málaga, Spain

    ELIXIR-EXCELERATE HPC Train-the-Researcher https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-excelerate-hpc-train-the-researcher This course to be held 6-7 April 2017 in Malaga, Spain is part of the Train-the-Researcher (TtR) subtask of the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE project. The course is organised as a two-day mini-symposium, and aims at introducing the participants in the complexities of parallel programming with emphasis on genome-scale comparison algorithms. The theoretical aspects of this course cover (a) the parallel programing background, with a quick overview in the architectures and programming models; and (b) the basis for genome-scale sequence comparison algorithms. The practical aspects are organised to master the concepts of data distribution and balancing using a Map-Reduce strategy and internal coding with MPI. Organization Overview This course has been prepared for two days including theoretical and practical parts. The first day will start with a brief introduction to HPC condensed during the morning. A practical introductory part to HPC will complete the first day. The second day will firstly provide the necessary background on the multiple genome comparison application GECKO. Secondly, on the same day, we will motivate the potential HPC techniques to be applied to this application and will let the students organize in groups to start thinking about a parallelization approach and later on implementing it. At the end of the day each group will briefly describe how they have implemented it and will present their results (i.e. speedup). Methods The course is comprised of practical exercises preceded by short lectures. Exercises will be conducted primarily in the C programming language using the MPI library. Target Audience This course is open to bioinformatics users and developers that aim at using HPC resources to extend their activity beyond the limitations of sequential applications on commodity hardware. This course will not suit participants that are looking for entry-level concepts in HPC. 20 participants will be selected by CV and motivation. Gender equality will be an additional aspect to select the participants. As an applicant to this course you need to fill out your personal information, attach your CV and provide a short paragraph to explain why you want to apply for this course. Optionally if you are part of an ELIXIR node you can also attach a letter of endorsement from the node manager. The last application day will be March 3rd, the result of the candidate selection will be notified March 8th. The course registration is free, but by sending this participation you commit to attend the course in case you are selected as it is stated in the conditions/policy document of the registration form. Pre-Requisites This course has a broad technical scope and hence programming skills are required. Experience in the command-line, writing and compiling C code would make the course easier to follow. 2017-04-06 09:00:00 UTC 2017-04-07 17:00:00 UTC Málaga, Málaga, Spain Málaga Málaga Málaga Spain Sequence analysis Computer science [] [] software developers, bioinformaticians workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
