Overview

Scaling applications to multiple GPUs across multiple nodes requires one to be adept at programming models and optimization techniques, and proficient at performing root-cause analysis using in-depth profiling to identify and minimize bottlenecks. The N-Ways to Multi-GPU Programming Bootcamp covers step-by-step ways to improve application performance using cues from profilers and provides an understanding of the underlying technologies and communication topology needed to leverage powerful NVIDIA® libraries to extract more performance from the system.

This Bootcamp, which will be hosted virtually for one and a half days on May 6–7, is co-organized by the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC), Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), Linköping University (LiU), OpenACC organization, and NVIDIA for EuroCC Austria, EuroCC@GCS, and EuroCC Sweden, all National Competence Centres for High-Performance Computing.

Please ensure you meet all prerequisites / eligibility before you apply.
