[hpc-announce] [CFP] Second International Workshop on Enhancing Parallel Scientific Applications with Accelerated HPC (ESAA) 2017

FRANCISCO JAVIER GARCIA BLAS fjblas at inf.uc3m.es
Tue Mar 7 00:54:27 CST 2017


to be held as part of EuroMPI/USA 2017 Chicago, USA, September 25-28, 2017



Since 2011, the most powerful supercomputers systems ranked in the Top500
list are hybrid systems composed of thousands of nodes that includes CPUs
and accelerators, as Xeon Phi and GPUs. Programming and deploying
applications on those systems is still a challenging work, due to the
complexity of the system and the need to mix several programming interfaces
(MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) in the same application.

This Workshop is aimed to explore the state of the art of developing
applications in accelerated massive HPC architectures, including practical
issues of hybrid usage models with MPI, OpenMP, and other accelerators
programming models. The idea is to publish novel work on the use of
available programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi) and tools for
code development, application performance optimizations, application
deployment on accelerated systems, as well as the advantages and
limitations of accelerated HPC systems. Experiences with real-world
applications, including scientific computing, numerical simulations,
healthcare, energy, data-analysis, etc. are also encouraged.


Areas of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

Tools, libraries, and environments for accelerators.
Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and accelerators.
Performance evaluation scientific applications based on accelerators.
Automatic performance tuning of scientific applications with accelerators.
Integrating accelerators on existing HPC middlewares.
Run-times for accelerators.
Energy efficient HPC solutions based on accelerators.
Storage cache solutions based on SSD accelerators.
Parallel data analysis for MPI and SSD.
Real-world scientific and engineering applications using accelerated HPC.
Future trends and prospects for accelerated HPC.
