45th SPEEDUP Workshop on Performance Challenges in HPC

We are glad to announce the

45th SPEEDUP Workshop on Performance Challenges in HPC

which will take place

September 15-16, 2016, at the University of Basel, Switzerland


The purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts in the field to present their ideas that focus on various performance challenges, to foster learning and inspiration, and to provoke discussions and exchanges on the state-of-the-art in high-performance and parallel scientific computing.

Invited speakers

Gerhard Wellein (FAU Erlangen, Germany),

Martin Schulz (Lawrence Livermore National Labs, USA)

Sascha Hunold (TU Wien, Austria)

Rudi Eigenmann (NSF and Purdue University, USA)

Michael Resch (University of Stuttgart, Germany)

Nicholas Holway (Novartis, Switzerland)

The scientific program will also include a series of lightning talks from young talents in HPC followed by a PhD poster session. The program will end with an engaging debate on the future of HPC, followed by an apero.

The presentations on Thursday, September 15, will focus on performance modeling, benchmarking, and analysis as well as the opportunities for achieving performance using accelerators, clouds, and future technologies.

On September 16th, a half-day tutorial on Performance and Energy Monitoring and Analysis and a half-day tutorial on Performance Reproducibility will be offered.

Students in all stages of their PhD are encouraged to actively participate in the PhD Forum by submitting their research in the form of a poster, which will be reviewed by the SPEEDUP committee. If your doctoral school allows it, students with accepted posters may earn one ECTS for attending the workshop and tutorials and for participating in the PhD Forum.

Deadline for the submission is  July 15, 2016.
