with more posters."
-Annual Meeting General Chairman, Ken Helm
W-14 GPU Computing for Upstream Applications and HPC User Tools
Date: Friday, 23 September
This full day workshop is being jointly organized by The Society of HPC Professionals and the HPC Advisory Council and will be conducted in the following two sessions:
Session 1: GPU Computing for Upstream Applications (Morning)
GPU clusters present new challenges – how to build a balanced hybrid system, how to create an optimized GPU to CPU communications, how to balance the compute nodes/GPU ratio and more. The workshop will cover concepts and topologies for hybrid clusters of GPU/CPU, the potential benefits and best practices for building and using such systems. The future of GPU computing and potential accelerations for GPU communications models will also be covered.
Session 2: HPC User Tools (Afternoon)
This workshop assesses the effectiveness of tools and techniques that are or could be helpful in upstream Petascale deployments and outlines potentially beneficial tools areas for research and development. This workshop is designed to foster a network of experts who are able to share information as Petascale systems come on line. The technology future of the HPC user tools and its marketplace will be covered.
