ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig at Supercomputing 2017

20.10.2017 // SCADS

This year, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis will take place from 12.-17. November 2017. You can visit thein Denver (Colorado, USA). Supercomputing 2017 is the biggest and most important get-together in the area of High Performance Computing (HPC). The conference and convention gives a detailed overview about latest achievements in science and technology. Furthermore, it informs about new trends and innovations.

Our program for Supercomputing 2017

The ZIH as partner of ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig will present its know-how in HPC and data intensive computing (Big Data) at the conference with:

  • talks,
  • tutorials and
  • discussions.

Furthermore, ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig will present its research highlights at the ZIH conference booth (#1881) alongside other research activities in the fields of:

  • performance analysis,
  • energy efficient computing and
  • data analytics.

Currently, the ZIH plans to extend its existing HPC computing infrastructure. Therefore, it will present its infrastructure concepts (HPC-DA) to bring together concepts from HPC and data analytics. Further research highlights are  online performance analysis and analysis of applications‘ I/O behavior. At the ZIH booth, visitors can try out the interactive online analysis prototype Vampir Live and experience new I/O analysis capabilities of Vampir, which is a widely used performance investigation tool for parallel applications. In particular, the I/O behavior of applications is becoming a bottleneck on the way to exascale high-performance computers. Novel I/O systems based on non-volatile memory technologies address this bottleneck. Together with the EU Horizon2020 project NEXTGenIO the I/O analysis capabilities of the tools Score-P and Vampir have been significantly enhanced.

More general information can be found at the conference homepage.
