On its tenth edition, the Programming and tUning Massively Parallel 
Systems + Artificial Intelligence summer school (PUMPS+AI) offers 
researchers and graduate students a unique opportunity to improve their 
skills with cutting-edge techniques and hands-on experience in 
developing and tuning applications for many-core processors with 
massively parallel computing resources like GPU accelerators.

- PUMPS 2019 Distinguished Lecturers:
  Wen-mei Hwu (Univ. of Illinois) and David Kirk (NVIDIA)

The summer school is oriented towards advanced programming and 
optimizations, and thus previous experience in basic GPU programming 
will be considered in the selection process. We will also consider the 
current parallel applications and numerical methods you are familiar 
with, and the specific optimizations you would like to discuss.

Some of the topics that will be covered during the course are:

* DEEP Learning
* High-level programming models (OpenACC, Python, and Mathematica on GPUs)
* CUDA Algorithmic Optimization Strategies
* Dealing with Sparse and Dynamic data
* Efficiency in Large Data Traversal
* Reducing Output Interference
* Controlling Load Imbalance and Divergence
* Acceleration of Collective Operations
* Dynamic Parallelism and HyperQ
* Debugging and Profiling CUDA Code
* Multi-GPU Execution
* Architecture Trends and Implications
* Introduction to OmpSs and to the Paraver analysis tools
* OmpSs: Leveraging GPU/CUDA Programming
* Hands-on Labs: CUDA Optimizations on Scientific Codes; OmpSs 
Programming and Tuning

Participants will have access to a multi-node cluster of GPUs, and will 
learn to program and optimize applications in languages such as CUDA and 
OmpSs. Teaching Assistants will be available to help with your hands-on 
lab assignments. At poster and hackathon sessions you may show your 
current work and applications you are optimizing. NVIDIA will award the 
best poster presentation.

- Important Dates:
Applications due: April 30, 2019
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2019
Summer school: June 25-29, 2019

Due to space limitations, early application is strongly recommended. You 
may also be suggested to attend an online prerequisite training on basic 
CUDA programming before joining PUMPS.

- Location: Barcelona Supercomputing Center / Computer Architecture 
Dept. at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain

PUMPS is organized by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (NVIDIA GPU 
Center of Excellence), the University of Illinois, the Universitat 
Politècnica de Catalunya, the HiPEAC Network of Excellence, and the 
PRACE Advanced Training Centre.

Looking forward to see you at the PUMPS Summer School,
