International Summer Supercomputing Academy 2016

publication date: June 21, 2016

International Summer Supercomputing Academy will be held at Lomonosov Moscow State University from June 23 to July 2, 2016.

The teaching staff of the Academy - the leading Russian and foreign scientists, professors and lectors of Moscow State University, well-known experts largest IT- companies. More than 100 participants from leading universities in Russia and other countries, many scientific organizations of the Russian Academy of Science and Industry will meet at the Academy to visit lectures on topical issues of supercomputer technology and high-performance computing, advanced training courses (tracks), master classes and workshops on specific topics, use of supercomputer technologies and the development of parallel algorithms and software for high-performance computing systems. In addition to workshops and lectures, the part of Academy's program will include Science conference at which students of the Academy will be able to present their scientific work.

The teaching staff of the Academy will consist of the leading Russian and foreign scientists, professors and lectors of Moscow State University, well-known experts largest IT- companies. The lecturers will teach classes in 6 sections:

  1. Parallel programming technologies OpenMP and MPI

  2. The basics of programming on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor

  3. Quantum information science

  4. High performance computing on clusters using a graphics accelerator NVIDIA

  5. Capabilities of opensource packages (Salome / OpenFOAM / Paraview) for solving MCC

  6. Administration of supercomputer systems

For the second year our company has the privilege to hold lectures and master classes in one of the tracks: The Basics of programming on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. This track is focused on students and teachers working in the field of programming for multicore architectures.

The company Singularis Lab prepared special workshops on the use of modern co-processors Intel® Xeon Phi ™. On the track it will be discussed problems of parallel programming coprocessor Intel® Xeon Phi ™: from a simple program "Hello, world!" to the optimization threading using environment variables. There will be shows all stages of development of a parallel program (by writing code and compile to run on a computing cluster). Practical classes will be good preparation for the upcoming release of the third generation multicore processors with Intel MIC architecture (codenamed Knights Landing).
