HPC@LSU invites you to attend our weekly training scheduled every Wednesdays, except university holidays. All training sessions are from 9:30AM to 11:30AM at 307 Frey Computing Services Center. The sessions will be available on adobe connect for remote participants and will be recorded for later review.

The training sessions are subject to cancellation due to lack of registrations, so please register if you plan on attending. Registration closes at noon on the day prior to the training.

Spring 2015 Training Schedule

1. April 1,2015: Xeon Phi programming 2

TopicXeon Phi programming 2
DateApril 1,2015
Time9:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Place307 Frey
DescriptionIntel Xeon Phi is a coprocessor based on Many Integrated Core Architecture or MIC. Computer codes can be accelerated substantially with Xeon Phi. More importantly, the programming architecture is based on traditional OpenMP and MPI. It is convenient to migrate your current CPU-based OpenMP or MPI codes to Xeon Phi. The recently launched supercomputer SuperMIC at LSU provides hundreds of compute nodes with Xeon Phis. If you want to accelerate your codes on SuperMIC, this is really the training you can not miss. You will learn how to write, compile and run Xeon-phi codes in this two-session training. In the first session, computing features of Xeon phi and its usage in HPC will be introduced. Then we will focus on state-of-the-art Xeon-phi programming, including native mode and offloading. In the second session, we will introduce symmetric processing with both CPU and Xeon phi. Optimizing and debugging codes will be also covered. Finally we will show some examples for running Xeon-phi enabled applications.
  • OpenMP and MPI parallel computation
  • C or Fortran programming (Either one is fine.)
  • All of the above are assumed but not required.

Virtual Images

For benefit of Training particpants who do not have ready access to a Linux machine, we have created a virtual image of CentOS 6.3. You can use this image in lieu of a LONI or LSU HPC account for some, but not all of our training courses. More details about this image and installation instructions are provided here
