[Last spots available]


On its 12th 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, with a 
special focus on AI.

- PUMPS 2022 Distinguished Lecturers:
   Wen-mei Hwu (UIUC and NVIDIA)
   Stephen Jones (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
* 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 Programming
* Hands-on Labs

Participants will have access to GPU servers and will learn to program 
and optimize applications and AI techniques 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: Past due, last spots available
  Notification of acceptance: First come, first served
  Summer school: September 3-6, 2022

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, Spain
