Introduction to the on-line course "CS267: Applications of Parallel Computers"

SESSION: BE Plenary I: Introduction to HPC and Its Applications

EVENT TYPE: HPC Interconnections (BE, Undergraduates, Cluster)

TIME: 9:15AM - 10:00AM

SESSION CHAIR: Tony Drummond

Presenter(s):James Demmel



CS267 is taught every spring to graduate students from many departments
at UC Berkeley, and since 2012 it has also been offered on-line by XSEDE to
students around the world, with free NSF supercomputer accounts to do the
autograded homework. After outlining the course, we go into more detail on
two overarching themes: (1) How to recognize common computational patterns
that arise nearly all high performance applications, and use them to make
implementations both more efficient and productive. (2) Since communication,
i.e. moving data, either between levels of a memory hierarchy or processors
over a network, is much more expensive than arithmetic, we present algorithms
for a number of these patterns that minimize communication. Finally, we
discuss other on-line course offerings.
