Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

F02: Basics of Supercomputing

SESSION: F02: Basics of Supercomputing

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM

Presenter(s):Thomas Sterling, Steven R. Brandt


This is THE crash course on supercomputers for everyone who knows almost nothing but wants to come up to speed fast. All the major topics are described and put into a meaningful framework. All of the terms both technical and community-related are presented and discussed in a practical, easy to grasp way. This half-day tutorial requires no prior knowledge or prerequisites other than a need to gain a quantum leap in understanding. The technical foundations will be provided in all the basics including supercomputer architecture and systems, parallel programming approaches and methods, tools for usage and debugging, and classes of applications. But also presented will be the basic HPC lexicon, the players in the community, the products leading the way, and what’s likely to come next. Either first timers or those needing a timely review will benefit from this coverage of the field of HPC.
