2015 HPC Summer Institute details or use the UPCOMING navigation button on top of this page.

The Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology at Rice University annually host basic (introduction to parallel programming) and advanced training summer institutes for high-performance computing. The Summer Institutes consist of in-class instructions by leading experts covering (topics vary by session) MPI, OpenMP, Pthreads, OpenCL, CUDA, and OpenACC, parallel I/O as well as performance analysis and tuning of parallel programs using open-source tools including Rice’s own HPCToolkit and Argonne National Lab’s Jumpshot. Each topic will be supported by hands-on exercises performed on Rice’s high performance systems (including x86 cluster with NVIDIA Fermi GPGPUs, POWER7 cluster and BlueGene/P).
