Welcome reception, College Court Conference Centre.
DiRAC are pleased to be hosting a hackathon at Leicester focussed on two novel technologies:
- Arm processors – use the HPE/Suse/Arm Catalyst UK cluster hosted at Leicester, to explore whether your code can benefit from the enhanced memory bandwidth offered by the Thunder X2 processors. In addition, codes which are found to perform well on Arm cores will be able to access (potentially significant amounts of) time on this 4096-core cluster at Leicester in the period before it is handed over to the DiRAC RAC and the University of Leicester to go into full production.
- Mellanox Bluefield – explore the potential benefits of offloading parts of your science calculations onto the additional compute capacity available within the next generation of network switches.
Technical experts from both Arm and Mellanox will be attending to provide assistance and advice on porting your code and/or modifying it to take advantage of the new hardware. DiRAC users who have attended previous hackathons have found them to be very productive, providing an opportunity to benefit from the expertise of colleagues around DiRAC as well as from the industry partners.
Thursday 12 September
Held on the first floor of the College Court Conference Centre. Exhibitors and posters are located in the Chestnut and Birch rooms, first floor of College Court.
