The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (ETH Zurich / CSCS) and Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) are pleased to announce this year’s Summer University on Effective High-Performance Computing and Data Analytics, which will be held from July 23 to 282023 as an in-person event with participation opportunities (via Zoom videoconference system) for digital attendees.

This CSCS/USI summer university course will focus on the effective exploitation of state-of-the-art hybrid High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems with a special focus on Data Analytics. Starting from an introductory explanation of the available systems at CSCS, the course will progress to more applied topics such as parallel programming on accelerators, code optimization, scientific libraries, and deep learning software frameworks. 

The following topics will be covered:

  • GPU architectures
  • GPU programming (CUDA)
    • Programming model
    • Memory management
    • Performance optimization and scientific libraries
  • GPU-Accelerated Computing with Python
    • NumPy-like libraries for both CPUs and GPUS computing
    • Just-in-time compilation from Python code
    • Distributed workloads on HPC clusters

Additional details are available on the official website.
