Additional Information
General content:
Practical matters:

This two day workshop introduces various Intel tools for developing and optimizing high performance computing software. The tools include Intel C/C++ and Fortran compilers, threading and vectorization analysis with Advisor XE, VTune profiler, and Intel MPI analysis tools. The workshop discussed optimization and development for Intel Xeon and Xeon Phi architectures and contains both lectures and hands-on exercises.

Learning outcome

How to use Intel tools for developing and optimization HPC software


Knowledge of C or Fortran programming language. Familiarity with OpenMP and MPI is useful.
