Well represented: NHR4CES at ISC High Performance 2022

For two years the ISC High Performance Conference could not take place as usual. Now it is back in a hybrid form and with top-class guests in lectures, tutorials and workshops that move the industry. From May 29 to June 2, Supercomputing Conference (ISC) will take place in Hamburg. Following the motto Transforming the future, the international conference for High Performance Computing (HPC) focuses on the most important developments and trends in the fields of HPC, machine learning and high-performance data analysis. 

As an NHR Center, NHR4CES will have a joint booth with the JARA Center for Simulations and Data Science and will be available throughout the exhibition to answer questions about infrastructure, computing time requests, support opportunities, and current research. The goal of NHR4CES is to provide scientists at German universities with the computing capacity they need for their research, and strengthen their skills for the efficient use of this resource.

ISC High Performance 2022 offers us the opportunity to show (potential) users our structures and thus the opportunities for scientists: Research more efficiently! We support the development of scalable algorithms and software for the investigation, development, design, construction, evaluation, and production of engineering applications with a particular focus on engineering and materials science as well as engineering-oriented physics, chemistry and medicine.

In addition to having a presence at the exhibition (booth number: J905), NHR4CES experts will also have a large presence in the conference part of ISC High Performance 2022. Dr. Christian Terboven from the CSG Parallelism and Performance in NHR4CES and head of the HPC group at RWTH Aachen University will kick things off with the tutorial Advanced OpenMP: Performance and 5.2 Features on May 29 at 9:00 am. Here, techniques will be presented to fully exploit the capabilities of current HPC compute nodes and achieve peak performance with OpenMP. The day continues with the tutorial Mastering Tasking with OpenMP in the afternoon. Here, the speakers address the relevance of OpenMP as a widely supported shared-memory model and the associated mastering of OpenMP’s tasking concept. The tutorial explores the tasking concept in detail and presents patterns as solutions to common problems. 

Another tutorial will be presented by Dr. Sandra Wienke from the CSG Parallelism and Performance in NHR4CES and the HPC group at RWTH Aachen University, among others, on May 29 at 2:00 pm. Titled Using the New SPEChpc 2021 Scientific Application Benchmark Suites for the Evaluation of HPC Ecosystems, the High Performance Group (HPG) of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) will present its benchmarks for HPC systems. The focus of this tutorial is on the new SPEChpc 2021 benchmark suites for the evaluation of HPC ecosystems. Attendees will be provided with hands-on guidance on how to install, configure, and run these new benchmark suites on the HPC systems provided.

Dr. Joachim Protze from the CSG Parallelism and Performance and the HPC group at RWTH Aachen University will contribute to the Focus Session on May 30 at 5:15 pm:  OMPT-based tools: How to use and how to build them. Dr. Tim Gerrits, a member of the CSG Visualization in NHR4CES, will participate as a speaker at the 6th International Workshop on In Situ Visualization on June 2 at 2:00 pm. There he will talk about his experiences in a young visualization group in HPC and NHR context.
