    The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in association with Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) has been awarded by NVIDIA as a GPU Center of Excellence. BSC and UPC currently offer a number of courses covering CUDA architecture and programming languages for parallel computing. Please contact us for possible collaborations. The ninth edition of the Programming and Tuning Massively Parallel Systems + Artificial Intelligence summer school (PUMPS+AI) is aimed at enriching the skills of researchers, graduate students and teachers with cutting-edge technique and hands-on experience in developing applications for many-core processors with massively parallel computing resources like GPU accelerators.

    The 2018 MaX Hackathon will offer an informal brain-storming environment and practical coding sessions on the MaX flagship codes (Quantum ESPRESSO, Siesta, Fleur, Yambo, AiiDA), including: Working groups active in the development of each flagship code, e.g. targeting the development of new features, performance improvements, performance portability to new architectures including GPUs, benchmarking and profiling. Advanced training for developers on selected topics (novel parallel paradigms, emerging MPI and OpenMP features/standards, support of GPUs & HW heterogeneity, HDF5 and parallel IO). Transversal coding activities (eg parallel IO, support of common electronic structure formats, GPU support). Further information here:
