The National Competence Center for HPC in Austria is organizing this 2 half-day training together with ESiWACE3, the Centre of Excellence in simulation of weather and climate in Europe. With expertise in earth system modelling, software design, and high-performance computing, ESiWACE3 is supporting scientists on the path to exascale computing.

This training is about Kernel Tuner, a tool for automatic optimization of GPU code, developed by a team from ESiWACE3. As a new development, Kernel Tuner adds support for mixed precision and tuning accuracy, which comes in addition to the existing functionality of tuning parameters and code optimizations for compute performance and/or energy efficiency. The first day of the training will focus on getting to know the tool, where as the second day is all about (energy) efficient computing on GPUs.
