The fields of computer architecture, interconnection networks and
system design are undergoing rapid change enabling very large
supercomputers to be built.

System advances have come in the form of increased parallelism from
many-core accelerators and improved communication interfaces.

The MPI library is also changing with several new capabilities
introduced to enable highly scalable parallel programs on such
systems.

This three-day webinar series introduces several of these
capabilities.

(2) Harness the power of GPUs: Introduction to GPGPU programming
June 16 - 20 2014, 11:00–4:00pm EST
Guido Juckeland, Indiana U Visiting Scholar,
Technische Universitaet Dresden
University Pervasive Technology Institute,
UITS Research Technologies Division
Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing (ZIH)

The course is a mixture of lectures and labs.

It introduces all levels of parallelism as well as common
approaches for parallelization in order to achieve the following
goal: Better utilization of the GPUs by enabling more scientists
to use them, better understanding of the efficiency in the GPU
utilization by the application developers, and a higher job
throughput by enabling more resources and shortening job runtimes.

In addition, the course enables participants to understand and
avoid the common pitfalls of parallel computing, learn CUDA and
OpenACC, understand the basic principles of data parallel
computing, tap into a lot of computing power, even on a laptop and
speed up their research.

(3) Data Intensive Summer School
June 30 – July 2 2014, 11:00–5:00pm EST
Organizer: Robert Sinkovits, San Diego Supercomputer Center

The Data Intensive Summer School focuses on the skills needed to
manage, process and gain insight from large amounts of data.

It is targeted at researchers from the physical, biological,
economic and social sciences that are beginning to drown in data.

We will cover the nuts and bolts of data intensive computing,
common tools and software, predictive analytics algorithms,
data management and visualization.

Given the short duration of the summer school, the emphasis will
be on providing a solid foundation that the attendees can use as
a starting point for advanced topics of particular relevance to
their work.
