SiPE is targeted at an audience of not just computer scientists but especially scientists and engineers, including a mixture of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff.
These workshops focus on fundamental issues of HPC as they relate to Computational and Data-enabled Science & Engineering, including:
* the storage hierarchy;
* instruction-level parallelism;
* high performance compilers;
* shared memory parallelism (e.g., OpenMP);
* distributed parallelism (e.g., MPI);
* HPC application types and parallel paradigms;
* multicore optimization;
* high throughput computing;
* GPGPU computing;
* scientific and I/O libraries;
* scientific visualization.
The key philosophy of the SiPE workshops is that an HPC-based code should be maintainable, extensible and, most especially, portable across platforms, and should be sufficiently flexible that it can adapt to, and adopt, emerging HPC paradigms.
* For the presentations:
-- at least one semester of programming experience in any of C, C++ or Fortran, recently.
* For the HPC exercises:
-- at least one semester of programming experience in any of C, C++ or Fortran, recently;
-- at least one semester of experience with any Unix-like operating system (could be Linux but doesn't have to be), recently (if someone doesn't have this, it's not a crisis, because the basics are covered in the first exercise).
