DescriptionThe purpose of this proposed seminar is to introduce participants to High Performance Computing technology, so that upon completion they may tackle simple performance tuning problems on their own.;;High Performance Computing is an essential part of today's research; through process simulation, and data mining one may thus explore phenomena that aren't visible or measurable, can't be reproduced, or can't be scaled to reasonable size.;;In this series of lectures we will provide a brief introduction to (a) system architecture concepts, (b) serial optimization techniques, and (c) shared memory parallelization.;
Benoit Marchand is a well-known figure in the world of High-Performance Computing and a frequent speaker at conferences. He built and managed SGI's (then Cray also) European HPC application tuning and benchmarking center and later also managed HPC sales and developed cluster products for Sun Microsystems Europe. He published the first Web manual on the subject of application tuning, authored a SPEC benchmark (resolved the Queens problem dilemma), was first to break the 1 GFlops barrier with the Linpack benchmark, authored several patents and founded a software company. He is renowned for developing innovative parallelization techniques and tools constantly pushing the limit of HPC technology. Mr Marchand holds a Master's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from University of Waterloo and an MBA from HEC
