You are cordially invited to attend the ATIP - A*CRC Workshop on Accelerator Technologies in High Performance Computing: Does Asia Lead the Way?
The recently announced Top500 List of Supercomputers serves as clear evidence that within the past twelve months, Asian Supercomputing players have advanced to the very high end of the Top500 list. As of the November 2011 ranking of the world's most powerful supercomputers, four out of the top five most powerful systems were built in Japan or China. Three of these five systems boast GPU accelerators.
Several supercomputers currently on order and already announced by the leading US national centers will be hybrid CPU-GPGPU systems.
It is thus an opportune time to analyze the current state-of-the-art accelerated HPC architectures from an Asian perspective and experience, including practical issues of use, code development, and performance, as well as the advantages and limitations of accelerated HPC systems.
We will be focusing on the practical aspects of scientific and engineering applications, experiences with program development, porting, tuning, performance optimization, efficiency, hardware utilization, time to solution, and the outlook for near-future trends and prospects for accelerated HPC.
This workshop will include two days of presentations followed by 1.5 days of site visits to relevant laboratories and research institutes in Singapore.
