Cancelled – Arm HPC User Group – 1st General Assembly

March 11, 2020 to March 13, 2020


Mont-Blanc 2020 is an invited speaker at the first General Assembly of the Arm HPC community.

Arm invites Arm HPC enthusiasts to join in Porto, Portugal on 11 March (hack-a-thon) and 12-13 (general assembly) for thoughtful, inspirational and formative discussion on the rise of Arm-based systems in the HPC community.

March 11 (hack-a-thon): INESC TEC facility:

Arm’s Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) has arrived, but what does SVE mean for typical high performance computing (HPC) workloads and how do you use it? This non-NDA event targets students and researchers developing HPC applications for emerging architectures.  We will present the fundamentals of vector length agnostic programming, introduce software tools for working with SVE, and show how common HPC codes can be recompiled to take advantage of large vector lengths without code modifications.  Remote access to Arm hardware will be provided.  

March 12/13 (general assembly) Intercontinental Hotel, Porto:

Topics include:

  • Introduction to the Arm HPC User Group + elections of officers
  • Update from Japan on Fugaku system @ RIKEN
  • Introduction to INESC TEC
  • Mont-Blanc 2020
  • Astra (Sandia National Laboratory) update & experiences
  • Arm + nVidia experiences at ORNL
  • Advances and updates on SVE: optimizations and futures (multiple talks)
  • Initiatives in AI & ML (multiple talks)
  • Software tools, experiences and support (multiple talks)
  • Panel discussion on the ecosystem, technology and business
