Programming and tUning Massively Parallel Systems summer school, Barcelona

April 16th, 2013

Programming and tuning Massively Parallel Systems Summer School (PUMPS)

This fourth edition offers researchers and graduate students a unique opportunity to improve their skills with cutting-edge techniques and hands-on experience in developing and tuning applications for many-core processors with massively parallel computing resources like GPU accelerators. Participants will have access to a multi-node cluster of GPUs, and will learn to program and optimize applications in languages such as CUDA and OmpSs. Teaching Assistants will be available to help with Hands-on Labs assignments. The summer school is oriented towards advanced programming and optimizations, and thus previous experience in basic GPGPU programming will be considered in the selection process.
