IXPUG Mid-Year Workshop 2021

The community-driven Intel Extreme Performance Users Group (IXPUG) will host this summer a Mid-Year Workshop 2021 preceding two major events for our community – ISC High Performance 2021 Digital and the oneAPI Developer Summit. 

We continue to see heterogeneous HPC architectures (XPUs) continue to become a dominating supercomputing platform for state-of-the-art model-driven simulations and artificial intelligence and big data applications to help the society to cope with significant challenges these days. The COVID-19 pandemic posed a grand challenge to the entire world. Several teams of scientists and HPC practitioners came together, combined computational simulation and artificial intelligence methods, and used HPC systems to rise to the challenge.

This half-day workshop is organized along with two major themes reflecting these challenges both at the technical and at the societal level – (i) experiences with oneAPI on GPUs and (ii) COVID-19 related biomedical simulations and data analytics applications.

The workshop will provide code developers, users, and providers of heterogeneous HPC systems an opportunity to share work-in-progress results and report best-practice solutions, to give feedback to Intel experts, and to network with colleagues within the HPC community.

We plan to have full length (30 minutes) presentations including time for Q&A. Late breaking or early work could be submitted as short lightning talks (15 minutes). The workshop will include invited keynotes from both Intel and the COVID-19 research community.
