JUWELS Booster Porting Workshop 2021 (online)

NB: This workshop will take place as an online event. The link to the online platform will be provided to accepted registrants only.

The JUWELS supercomputer complex at JSC integrates a Booster module, featuring over 900 compute nodes comprising quad NVIDIA A100 ‘Ampere’ GPUs. Production starts in November 2020, and application porting will be necessary to get the most out of this powerful new research tool.

This workshop will cover porting HPC application codes which are already GPU-enabled to the brand-new hardware/software using multiple quad-GPU compute nodes, as well as getting code running that has not yet been adapted to use (multiple) GPUs. When registering, you can choose either or both parts. Additionally, the workshop will start with a one-day colloquium where participants of the Early Access programme present their results to date and experience using the new system.

A workshop following in February (38th VI-HPS Tuning Workshop) will then cover vital steps to analyse and tune the execution of multi-node GPU codes to maximise their performance on JUWELS Booster.

It is highly recommended that project PIs with an allocation for JUWELS-Booster (who did not participate in the Early Access programme) send at least one expert on their code to this workshop.
