PDC Summer School/Introduction to High-Performance Computing
You are invited to register for the summer school "Introduction to
High-Performance Computing" being held at PDC on the KTH main campus.
To register, and find out more about the school, visit the school Web
page at http://www.pdc.kth.se/education/summer-school/.
The PDC Summer School in High-Performance Computing is an annual
offering to researchers to improve on their skills in scientific
computing. The course is held for its seventeenth consecutive year at
KTH, Stockholm, Sweden.
During two intensive summer weeks at the KTH campus students will be
able to learn and improve their skills in writing efficient programs
for parallel scientific applications.
The course carries 7.5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation
System), where 1.5 ECTS credits are equivalent to one week's workload
of 40 hours. The student receives these credits on successful
completion of the post-course project. Participants are strongly
encouraged to bring their own problems or programs for discussion and
to possibly use as the basis of the post-course project. Participants
are provided with access to PDC's Lindgren (Cray XE6) system, the
fastest supercomputer in the Nordics. Industrial participation is
welcome. The number of seats for all participants is limited.
*Registration opens March 15 and closes June 1, 2012.*
A number of topics will be covered in overview lectures given by
international experts and in- depth technical lectures followed by
hands-on computer lab sessions. The course will consist of about 35
hours of lectures and 35 hours of computer lab sessions. Among the
Parallel Programming (MPI, OpenMP, GPU)
Modern Computer Architectures
Roughly half of the class time will be spent hands-on in the lab. The
lecturers and the PDC staff will assist in the computer labs. Students
who do not already have an account at PDC will receive one. These
accounts will stay active after the course so students may work on the

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
