Energy-aware application development for heterogenous computing

Date: 21/Nov/2017 Time: 09:00


Campus Nord. Building C6. Room 106

Target group: Practitioners and Students interested in application development

Primary tabs


With this course, we aim to present the TANGO toolbox which provides a set of tools to simplify and optimize the usage of distributed heterogeneous computing environments. We mainly target to attract students, HPC application developers and System administrators which can benefit from the tools we developed at the TANGO project. Students of this course will learn how to use the TANGO toolbox to easily develop parallel applications and efficiently execute them in heterogeneous distributed computing environments.


Programming skills in C/C++

Learning Outcomes

In the first lesson the student will learn why heterogeneous computing is important nowadays. In the second lesson, students will get an oveview of TANGO toolbox components and the provided functionality.

In the third lesson, the attendees will get a first lesson about the programming model and an overview of the runtime internals. The attendees will programming with COMPSs that will enable them to start programming with this framework.

A hands-on with simple introductory exercises will be also performed. The students who finish this course will be able to develop simple applications and to run them in a distributed heterogeneous platform.
