    CAS Personalized Molecular Oncology https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cas-personalized-molecular-oncology The CAS in Personalized Molecular Oncology aims at providing a comprehensive and integrative view of the field, by covering all the aspects involved along the pipeline: (i) tumor biology and genetics, (ii) molecular pathology, (iii) clinical bioinformatics, and (iv) clinical oncology. First of its kind in Switzerland, it will focus on the methodologies used to generate, analyze and interpret patients’ molecular profiles, also touching upon the associated technical, regulatory and ethical challenges. As an important outcome, it will establish a common language between the wide range of professionals involved in the personalized oncology process, from biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists to clinicians, enabling an efficient and better informed use of e.g. genomic data for both routine clinical practice and clinical research. Moreover, it should empower professionals to develop a vision for their own institution, by critically evaluating the potential benefits and limitations of current and future developments in personalized oncology.

  • Efficient Parallel I/O @ EPCC at Imperial College London

    28 - 29 March 2019

    Efficient Parallel I/O @ EPCC at Imperial College London https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/efficient-parallel-i-o-epcc-at-imperial-college-london Please note:  This course will take place at Imperial College London SALC 10,  Sherfield building, level 5, South Kensington Campus One of the greatest challenges to running parallel applications on large numbers of processors is how to handle file IO. Standard IO routines are not designed with parallelism in mind, and IO overheads can grow to dominate the overall runtime. Parallel file systems are optimised for large data transfers, but performance can be far from optimal if every process opens its own file or if all IO is funneled through a single master process. This hands-on course explores a range of issues related to parallel IO. It uses ARCHER and its parallel Lustre file system as a platform for the exercises; however, almost all the IO concepts and performance considerations are applicable to any parallel system. The IO part of the MPI standard gives programmers access to efficient parallel IO in a portable fashion. However, there are a large number of different routines available and some can be difficult to use in practice. Despite its apparent complexity, MPI-IO adopts a very straightforward high-level model. If used correctly, almost all the complexities of aggregating data from multiple processes can be dealt with automatically by the library. The first day of the course will cover the MPI-IO standard, developing IO routines for a regular domain decomposition example. It will also briefly cover higher-level standards such as HDF5 and NetCDF which are built on top of MPI-IO. The second day will concentrate on performance, covering how to configure the parallel file system and tune the MPI-IO library for best performance. Case studies from real codes will be presented. Prerequisites: The course assumes a good understanding of basic MPI programming in Fortran, C or C++. Knowledge of MPI derived datatypes would be useful but not essential.

  • Population genomics: Background, tools and programming

    30 March - 6 April 2019

    Italy

    Population genomics: Background, tools and programming https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/population-genomics-background-tools-and-programming Study methods in population genomics have been profoundly reshaped in the last few years, fostered by a rapid growth of DNA sequence production and sharing. This unprecedented opportunity guided major steps forward in the field and calls for new approaches and computational skills to become routine in evolutionary genomics laboratories. The objectives of this EMBO Practical Course are to give an overview of the state of the art methods in population genomics, including programming, and to enable participants to run their project’s analyses with high confidence. The course combines lectures from outstanding experienced population geneticists with practice, both at individual and group level. All conceptual innovation will be presented in lectures and applied in practice. This EMBO Practical Course will cover coalescent, genetic diversity, natural selection, population demography in time and space, admixture, genetic clustering, and genome-wide association studies. Population genetics topics will be complemented by computational ones such as Python programming and machine learning techniques. This course aims at evolutionary biologists who already have basic bioinformatics skills. Ph.D. students and Postdoc researchers will benefit the most out of this course, but applications from all candidates will be evaluated in their context. 2019-03-30 09:00:00 UTC 2019-04-06 17:00:00 UTC EMBO Procida, Italy Procida Italy Population genomics [] Organizing Secretariat Scientific Communication srl info@jeangilder.it +39 081 2296460 EMBO Evolutionary BiologistsPhD Studentspost-docs workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Programming paradigms for GPU devices@Cineca

    1 - 3 April 2019

    Programming paradigms for GPU devices@Cineca https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/programming-paradigms-for-gpu-devices-cineca-1dff73da-578e-4e79-89d6-7b12bc4c67b9 This course gives an overview of the most relevant GPGPU computing techniques to accelerate computationally demanding tasks on HPC heterogeneous architectures based on GPUs. The course will start with an architectural overview of modern GPU based heterogeneous architectures, focusing on its computing power versus data movement needs. The course will cover both a high level (pragma-based) programming approach with OpenACC for a fast porting startup, and lower level approaches based on nVIDIA CUDA and OpenCL programming languages for finer grained computational intensive tasks. A particular attention will be given on performance tuning and techniques to overcome common data movement bottlenecks and patterns. Topics: Overview of architectural trends of GPUs in HPC. GPGPU parallel programming in heterogeneous architectures. Basis of OpenACC, CUDA and OpenCL programming. Skills: By the end of the course, students will be able to: understand the strengths and weaknesses of GPUs as accelerators program GPU accelerated applications using both higher and lower level programming approaches overcome problems and bottlenecks regarding data movement between host and device memories make best use of independent execution queues for concurrent computing/data-movement operations Target Audience: Researchers and programmers interested in porting scientific applications or use efficient post-process and data-analysis techniques in modern heterogeneous HPC architectures. Prerequisites: A basic knowledge of C or Fortran is mandatory. Programming and Linux or Unix. A basic knowledge of any parallel programming technique/paradigm is recommended.

  • Performance portability for GPU application using high-level programming approaches @ MdlS /Idris

    1 - 2 April 2019

    Performance portability for GPU application using high-level programming approaches @ MdlS /Idris https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/performance-portability-for-gpu-application-using-high-level-programming-approaches-mdls-idris-e05a2681-bd72-4aea-9ea1-7fa210925446 When developing a numerical simulation code with high performance and efficiency in mind, one is often compelled to accept a trade-off between using a native-hardware programming model (like CUDA or OpenCL), which has become tremendously challenging, and loosing some cross-platform portability. Porting a large existing legacy code to a modern HPC platform, and developing a new simulation code, are two different tasks that may be benefit from a high-level programming model, which abstracts the low-level hardware details. This training presents existing high-level programming solutions that can preserve at best as possible performance, maintainability and portability across the vast diversity of modern hardware architectures (multicore CPU, manycore, GPU, ARM, ..) and software development productivity. We will  provide an introduction to the high-level C++ programming model Kokkos https://github.com/kokkos, and show basic code examples  to illustrate the following concepts through hands-on sessions: hardware portability: design an algorithm once and let the Kokkos back-end (OpenMP, CUDA, ...) actually derive an efficient low-level implementation; efficient architecture-aware memory containers: what is a Kokkos::view; revisit fundamental parallel patterns with Kokkos: parallel for, reduce, scan, ... ; explore some mini-applications. Several detailed examples in C/C++/Fortran will be used in hands-on session on the high-end hardware platform Ouessant (http://www.idris.fr/ouessant/), equipped with Nvidia Pascal GPUs. Prerequisites: Some basic knowledge of the CUDA programming model and of C++. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/818/ 2019-04-01 07:30:00 UTC 2019-04-02 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
