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

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
