This year's aiXcelerate HPC Tuning Workshop will focus on two topics:

1.    MPI+OPA: Tuning of parallel programs employing message passing with
MPI and running on the Intel OmniPath fabric.
2.    KNL: Tuning for Intel's Xeon Phi new many core processor

The nodes of Claix, the latest RWTH Aachen University?s Supercomputer, are connected through a network with the Intel OmniPath architecture (OPA).

What do you need to do to use this new fabric  in an optimal way with MPI? Claix has recently been complemented by 16 nodes containing an Intel's Xeon Phi 7210 processor - code named Knights Landing (KNL).

At the Jülich Supercomputer Centre a cluster called "Booster" will soon be installed which will contain Intel's Xeon Phi many core 7250-F processors and an Intel OmniPath fabric. The KNL nodes at Aachen can well be used to
prepare and tune programs for Booster.
