    Abstract: During evolution genes are continuously gained and lost, contributing to the adaptation of the organism to a changing environment. The best understood mechanism for the birth of new genes is the duplication and modification of already existing genes. However, in recent years, evidence has been gathered that some genes are born de novo from previously non-coding genomic sequences. The proteins encoded by de novo genes bear no resemblance to other proteins and thus represent radical innovations. Over the past 10 years we have investigated the mechanisms underlying de novo gene birth, including the emergence of novel transcripts, the translation of small ORFs and the functions of recently originated proteins. Whereas some of these processes are now better understood, many...

    This is an expansion of the topic "OpenACC and other approaches to GPU computing" covered on last years editions of the Introduction to CUDA Programming.  This course is delivered by the GPU Center of Excellence (GCOE) awarded by NVIDIA to the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in association with Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC). It will provide very good introduction to the PUMPS Summer School run jointly with NVIDIA -  also  at Campus Nord, Barcelona. For further information visit the school website. As an NVIDIA GPU Center of Excellence, BSC and UPC are deeply involved in research and outreach activities around GPU Computing. OpenACC is a high-level, directive-based programming model for GPU computing. It is a very convenient language to...

    This course will provide very good introduction to the PUMPS Summer School run jointly with NVIDIA also  at Campus Nord, Barcelona. For further information visit the school website  as this school has attendee selection process. You may also be interested in our Introduction to OpenACC course. The aim of this course is to provide students with knowledge and hands-on experience in developing applications software for processors with massively parallel computing resources. In general, we refer to a processor as massively parallel if it has the ability to complete more than 64 arithmetic operations per clock cycle. Many commercial offerings from NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel already offer such levels of concurrency. Effectively programming these processors will...

    Abstract: Cancer is a global health issue with a mortality rate that is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades (World Health Organization). Despite the significant breakthroughs in its understanding, prevention, and treatment, cancer’s complexity slows the quest for its cure. The advent of high-throughput technologies has provided the possibility to gather a comprehensive molecular picture of this disease by allowing the detailed characterization of thousands of tumors at multiple molecular levels (“multi-omics”). The current main challenge is to translate this wealth of information into actionable knowledge about the pathogenesis of this disease. In this talk I will give three examples of how the integration of multiple omics data can reveal new...

    The Doctoral Symposium will take place in Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, within the UPC Campus Nord premises. Building A3 on the map. Aula Master :
    7 May 2019 - 09:00 to 9 May 2019 - 18:00
    The aim of the BSC Severo Ochoa Doctoral Symposium is to provide a forum in which PhD students and PostDoc researchers can present the results of their research work. To reach these goals, the attending PhD students and PostDoc researchers will share their experience and findings through talks, poster sessions and discussions. The tutorials on the symposium focus on career development with lectures on research and functioning skills: presentation, academic writing, IPR issues etc.   Authors are invited to submit manuscripts regarding original research and recent developments as well as position and strategic papers in the remit of the Symposium. All accepted abstracts will be given presentation or poster slot. The submitted abstracts must be camera-ready and formatted...

    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

    This tutorial will introduce the audience to the BSC tools for heterogenous programming on FPGA devices. It describes OmpSs@FPGA, as a productive programming environment for compute systems with FPGAs. More specifically, the tutorial will: Introduce the OmpSs@FPGA programming model, how to write, compile and execute applications on FPGAs Show the "implements" feature to explot parallelism across cores and IP cores Demonstrate how to analyze applications to determine which portions can be executed on FPGAs, and use OmpSs@FPGA to parallelize/optimize them.

    The 7th SPU Workshop is part of the International conference in Computational Science (ICCS2019), to be held in Algarve, Portugal, 12-14 June 2019 (https://www.iccs-meeting.org/iccs2019/) The theme for ICCS 2019 is “Computational Science in the Interconnected World”. ICCS is an ERA A-ranked conference series. Problems with uncertainty need to be tackled in an increasing variety of areas ranging from problems in physics, chemistry, engineering, computational biology and environmental sciences to decision making in economics and social sciences. Uncertainty is unavoidable in almost all systems analysis, in risk analysis, in decision making and modelling and simulation. How uncertainty is handled and quantified shapes the integrity of the analysis, and the correctness and...
