  • Node-Level Performance Engineering @ LRZ

    20 - 21 February 2019

    Node-Level Performance Engineering @ LRZ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/node-level-performance-engineering-lrz-9d1ccd4c-855b-4ad3-b4a1-44a0054656c5 This course teaches performance engineering approaches on the compute node level. "Performance engineering" as we define it is more than employing tools to identify hotspots and bottlenecks. It is about developing a thorough understanding of the interactions between software and hardware. This process must start at the core, socket, and node level, where the code gets executed that does the actual computational work. Once the architectural requirements of a code are understood and correlated with performance measurements, the potential benefit of optimizations can often be predicted. We introduce a "holistic" node-level performance engineering strategy, apply it to different algorithms from computational science, and also show how an awareness of the performance features of an application may lead to notable reductions in power consumption. The course is a PRACE training event. Introduction Our approach to performance engineering Basic architecture of multicore systems: threads, cores, caches, sockets, memory The important role of system topology Tools: topology & affinity in multicore environments Overview likwid-topology and likwid-pin Microbenchmarking for architectural exploration Properties of data paths in the memory hierarchy Bottlenecks OpenMP barrier overhead Roofline model: basics Model assumptions and construction Simple examples Limitations of the Roofline model Pattern-based performance engineering Optimal use of parallel resources Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) Cache-coherent Non-Uniform Memory Architecture (ccNUMA) Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) Tools: hardware performance counters Why hardware performance counters? likwid-perfctr Validating performance models Roofline case studies Dense matrix-vector multiplication Sparse matrix-vector multiplication Jacobi (stencil) smoother Optional: The ECM performance model https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/821/ 2019-02-20 08:00:00 UTC 2019-02-21 16:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Brugge, Belgium

    Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/type-2-immunity-in-homeostasis-and-disease Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells. Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well. This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer. Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Abstracts can be submitted for the following topics: Tissue homeostasis and repair Type 2 Neuro-immune axis Type 2 in allergy, asthma & helminth infection Type 2 Immunity & Cancer Deadlines: • Early Bird: 10 January 2019 • Late Registration: 7 February 2019 • Abstract deadline: 19 December 2018 2019-02-21 08:00:00 UTC 2019-02-22 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences OLD ST.

  • The 1918 influenza pandemic: Historical and biomedical reflections

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Ypres, Belgium

    The 1918 influenza pandemic: Historical and biomedical reflections https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-1918-influenza-pandemic-historical-and-biomedical-reflections At the centenary commemoration of the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic, many questions with regard to the origin, the development and the impact of this worldwide phenomenon remain largely uncharted. • Where did this virus come from? • To what degree and how were its genesis and its rapid transcontinental spread caused and/or facilitated by the war circumstances? • Which genetic features of the virus explain its unusually high pathogenicity? • How did medical and political authorities react? • Why were some age groups spared by this dreadful virus? • Is it possible to fathom the impact of the pandemic both on the everyday life of citizens and on general developments in science, culture and politics? • How far can a historical approach contribute to the understanding of current-day pandemics, and vice versa?

  • Parallel and Scalable Machine Learning @ JSC

    25 - 27 February 2019

    Parallel and Scalable Machine Learning @ JSC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/parallel-and-scalable-machine-learning-jsc-424a6e5f-64a6-471e-af99-5b940b60a8a4 The course offers basics of analyzing data with machine learning and data mining algorithms in order to understand foundations of learning from large quantities of data. This course is especially oriented towards beginners that have no previous knowledge of machine learning techniques. The course consists of general methods for data analysis in order to understand clustering, classification, and regression. This includes a thorough discussion of test datasets, training datasets, and validation datasets required to learn from data with a high accuracy. Easy application examples will foster the theoretical course elements that also will illustrate problems like overfitting followed by mechanisms such as validation and regularization that prevent such problems. The tutorial will start from a very simple application example in order to teach foundations like the role of features in data, linear separability, or decision boundaries for machine learning models. In particular this course will point to key challenges in analyzing large quantities of data sets (aka ‘big data’) in order to motivate the use of parallel and scalable machine learning algorithms that will be used in the course. The course targets specific challenges in analyzing large quantities of datasets that cannot be analyzed with traditional serial methods provided by tools such as R, SAS, or Matlab. This includes several challenges as part of the machine learning algorithms, the distribution of data, or the process of performing validation. The course will introduce selected solutions to overcome these challenges using parallel and scalable computing techniques based on the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and OpenMP that run on massively parallel High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms. The course ends with a more recent machine learning method known as deep learning that emerged as a promising disruptive approach, allowing knowledge discovery from large datasets in an unprecedented effectiveness and efficiency. Prerequisites: Knowledge on job submissions to large HPC machines using batch scripts, knowledge of mathematical basics in linear algebra helpful. Participants should bring their own notebooks (with an ssh-client). Learning outcome: After this course participants will have a general understanding how to approach data analysis problems in a systematic way. In particular this course will provide insights into key benefits of parallelization such as during the n-fold cross-validation process where significant speed-ups can be obtained compared to serial methods. Participants will also get a detailed understanding why and how parallelization provides benefits to a scalable data analyzing process using machine learning methods for big data and a general understanding for which problems deep learning algorithms are useful and how parallel and scalable computing is facilitating the learning process when facing big datasets. Participants will learn that deep learning can actually perform ‘feature learning’ that bears the potential to significantly speed-up data analysis processes that previously required much feature engineering. Application Applicants will be notified one month before the course starts, whether they are accepted for participitation.
