The National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) will offer on March 27 "Programming the New Intel® Xeon Phi™" the third in a series of three distinct one-day workshops to enhance the skills of students and researchers in various areas in the wide field of high-performance computing. This in-person workshop is free of charge and will be held at the Min H. Kao Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building on the campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Computational scientists from NICS will introduce participants to the next generation of accelerator: the Intel Xeon Phi and work interactively with them to effectively program for Beacon, the newest open system for scientific computing at NICS and number one on the Green 500 list.
Experienced programmers will learn how to write or adapt their current MPI and/or OpenMP codes to the new architecture and see real examples of codes that have benefited from the introduction of the Xeon Phi coprocessor alongside Intel Xeon processors that they already knew how to utilize.
Registration for the workshop is through the National Science Foundation's XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) training system, which will require a quick-and-easy XSEDE portal registration if the participant is not already in the system. After logging in to their XSEDE portal accounts, participants can register for the workshops or access the Course Calendar by way of the Training link on the XSEDE portal site navigation bar.
