High Performance Computing on Stampede 2, with KNL
January 23, 2017
9 am to 5 pm EST
There is no fee to attend

This workshop is in-person training on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. There will be no webcast.

Stampede 2 is an Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) resource located at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin. This new system will ultimately grow to become an 18 petaflops (peak) Dell Linux cluster based on Intel Xeon Phi "Knights Landing" processors and an Intel Omni-Path interconnect. The current preview phase of Stampede 2 consists of 508 compute nodes. Large-scale deployment phases are scheduled for summer and fall of 2017, bringing the final system size to 5,940 nodes.

The workshop will consist of lectures and labs conducted by CAC staff. Lab exercises will be conducted on Stampede with consultants available during the training session to assist the attendees. There is no fee to attend. Additional information on the workshop is available at:
