  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!

    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins-661da9dc-2159-4a34-8809-7851dfbe0b8a Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones.
