PRACE Workshop: Programming and Optimizing the Intel Knights Landing Manycore Processor

This two days workshop is arranged together with PRACE, and will have instructors from Intel. The course focuses on programming and optimizing the Intel Knights Landing Manycore Processor. It addresses the Intel® Xeon Phi™, codenamed “Knights Landing (KNL)” architecture and how to best use it efficiently.  

While the focus is on the KNL, the methods are applicable to many other architectures as well. The course is thus relevant to many different groups of people, including HPC users and researchers who want to get as much as possible possible out of their architecture. As well, the course is of interest for anyone who wants to increase their knowledge about vectorization and optimization, and learn more about how to apply it to their own codes.

Please bring your own laptop if you wish to participate in the hands-ons.

Lunch and coffee/tea will be provided both days.

Prerequisites: The participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of programming.

Instructors: Mikko Byckling and Asma Farjallah from Intel.

Time and date: 24-25 April 2018.
