PATC: Heterogeneous Programming on GPUs with MPI & OmpSs

Date: 04/Mar/2020 Time: 09:30 - 05/Mar/2020 Time: 17:30

Place:

The course will take place in Barcelona Supercomputing Center, within the UPC Campus Nord premises.Vertex Building Room VS208

Target group: Level: INTERMEDIATE: for trainees with some theoretical and practical knowledge; those who finished the beginners course ADVANCED: for trainees able to work independently and requiring guidance for solving complex problems

Cost: There is no registration fee. The attendees would need to cover the expenses for travel, accommodation and meals.

Primary tabs

Objectives

The tutorial will motivate the audience on the need for portable, efficient programming models that put less pressure on program developers while still getting good performance for clusters and clusters with GPUs.

More specifically, the tutorial will:

  • Introduce the hybrid MPI/OmpSs parallel programming model for future exascale systems
  • Demonstrate how to use MPI/OmpSs to incrementally parallelize/optimize:
    • MPI applications on clusters of SMPs, and
    • Leverage CUDA kernels with OmpSs on clusters of GPUs

Requirements

Prerequisites:
Good knowledge of C/C++
Basic knowledge of CUDA/OpenCL
Basic knowledge of Paraver/Extrae

Learning Outcomes

The students who finish this course will be able to develop benchmarks and simple applications with the MPI/OmpSs programming model to be executed in clusters of GPUs.
