Technical Workshop on Manycore Computing with Knights Landing (KNL) Systems

Tuesday, 6 November 2018 from to (Asia/Seoul)
at KISTI ( International Conference Room )
245 Daehakro, Yuseonggu, Daejeon 34141, Korea
The goal of workshop is to have in-depth discussion about technical issues and solutions on high performance computing with Intel KNL clusters. Potential plans for future collaborations among the world top-4 KNL service provider (NERSC, Univ. of Tsukuba, TACC, and KISTI) will be also discussed.

The technical topics of contributed talks mainly include but are not limited to:
  (1) performance optimization of application codes
  (2) service management of computing machines
  (3) political issues - how to maximize the KNL utility for supporting scientific research

Organized by Hoon Ryu and Kihyeon Cho
