PRACE Spring School 2012 will take place from the 16th to the 18th of May 2012 in Poland in Cracow.

In this three-day event, called ”School for Developers of Petascale Applications”, the participants will learn how to create efficient and scalable parallel codes for PRACE Tier-0 systems.

Efficient usage of HPC systems requires detailed knowledge of architecture-specific factors influencing performance, including compilers, tools and libraries.

The first day of the school will be fully devoted to the PRACE Tier-0 systems and best practices on how to achieve good performance on those systems.

During the second day participants grouped in three thematic tracks will develop their own parallel codes with the use of existing libraries. The basic knowledge on parallelization techniques will be required.

Application tuning will be the topic of the third day. Participants will learn how to use available Performance Analysis Tools to optimize parallel applications.

The IBM Blue Gene/P machine Notos located at ICM, University of Warsaw will be at disposal for the participants.

Organizing institutions: ICM UW, ACC CYFRONET AGH, PSNC (all Poland), VSB-TUO (Czech Republic).

Attendance is free for all academics affiliated to PRACE member countries.
