Mont-Blanc partner BSC is organising an Arm SVE hackathon for application developers who are interested in investigating the impact of novel SVE extensions in their HPC applications.
The hackathon will be held as a virtual event using Zoom.
This hackathon targets application developers that are interested in investigating the impact of novel SVE extensions in their High Performance Computing (HPC) and Machine Learning (ML) applications. Arm researchers and engineers will describe the different HPC tools available from Arm (including compilers, libraries, debugging and profiling tools) to explore the benefits of SVE extensions in a particular application. Also, they will guide the attendees when porting their applications of interest to the first CPU to implement SVE, the Fujitsu A64FX. Also, representative mini-applications from well-known HPC benchmark suites will be provided to attendees that prefer to explore the benefits SVE capabilities with simpler codes. In order to ease this experience, the organizers will provide access to the CTE-ARM cluster from Fujitsu hosted at BSC facilities with all the required tools already installed.
This event is supported by the Arm-BSC Centre of Excellence and the Mont-Blanc 2020 European project.
