SiPE is targeted at an audience of not only 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.
Workshops are held Tuesdays at 2 pm Central beginning Jan. 22, 2013. PowerPoints from past workshops are available online (http://www.oscer.ou.edu/education.php).
