Parallelism is critical to achieving performance at all levels of the computing landscape, from small edge devices to the largest supercomputers. Taking advantage of parallelism requires the right programming tools, techniques, and knowledge. We welcome experiences in all aspects of code modernization from vectorization to threading to message passing on a variety of parallel computing platforms.
High Productivity Languages
“Good, Cheap, and Fast… Pick Two” is the adage that is often used to highlight trade-offs in selecting qualities that you desire. In programming, scripting languages typically fall under the “faster to learn, easy to write but not performant” where the two qualities are the reasons why you picked it in the first place, but you would like all three! This area will focus on how these high productivity languages such as Python, R, and Julia are helping drive not only emerging research in HPC but also being deployed at scale in Big Data/Machine Learning HPC environments.
Machine Learning/Deep Learning: Machine Learning is transforming everything from self-driving cars to health care analytics. We welcome deep dive technical sessions that focus on machine learning research, application and scaling techniques in HPC environments.
Configuration, Management & Cloud – Standing up HPC systems, keeping them healthy and running optimally is challenging at any scale. Additionally, the availability of cloud based HPC resources and containerization has fostered new usage models. This area’s focus will be on the deployment and management of HPC resources along with their complex software ecosystems.
In today’s hyper-competitive, data-dependent world, businesses must compete smarter to differentiate effectively, deliver new products and see faster results. Cutting-edge business analytics and artificial intelligence are fundamental to achieving and retaining competitive advantage. This area focuses on how real-world enterprises harness the power of analytics and the latest Intel technology platforms to drive business growth and innovation.
The latest highly parallel Intel® processors enable high performance, interactive and high fidelity (up to photo-realistic) CPU based rendering using libraries such as Mesa with OpenSWR, Embree, and OSPRay. We welcome case studies, implementations, and research involving CPU based Visualization applications and infrastructure.
