A free two-week virtual school organised by the largest Italian computing center and also a partner in the SCtrain project – CINECA.
The aim of this workshop is to deliver a “traning on the job” school based on a class of selected numerical methods for parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
The workshop aims to share the methodologies, numerical methods and their implementation used by the state-of-the-art numerical codes used on hybrid multi-many core High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. The lectures will present the challenges of numerically solving Partial Differential Equations (PDE) in problems related to fluid-dynamics, using massively parallel clusters.
The lectures will give a step-by-step walk through the numerical methods and their parallel aspects, starting from a serial code up to scalablity on clusters, including strategies for parallelization (MPI, OpenMPI, GPUs, plug-in of numerical libraries,….) with hands-on during the lectures. Profiling and optimization techiques on standard and heterogeneous clusters will be shown during the school.
Duration: two weeks, from 30 Nov. until 11 Dec. 2020
