PRACE workshop on application porting and performance tuning
The workshop gives HPC experts, computational scientists and students an overview of issues involved in porting and tuning codes on the PRACE prototypes. The lectures will cover new programming models suited for future petaflops supercomputers, issues involved in selecting and using numerical libraries and best-practices learned from tuning and porting three scientific applications. Finally an introduction to two important performance measurement tools, Scalaca and Paraver, will be given.
