HPC usage and parallel computing learning for software development.
CESGAHACK 3 will take place at the CITIC, A Coruña (Spain), from September 24 to 28, with the participation of several teams from around the world to accelerate the execution time of applications and to spend less time coding.
Appentra organizes the third edition of this event with the sponsorship of NVIDIA, CITIC (Center of ICT Research) and CESGA (Supercomputing Center of Galicia). Team Xesol of Xesol Innovation, IHC of the Environmental Hydraulics Foundation of Cantabria, Brainiacs_02 of the Politecnico di Torino and dRPMD of the CSIC (National Scientific Research Council) will be some of the teams that will work to improve the performance of codes in a wide range of scientific applications.
Parallelware Trainer and Parallelware Analyzer will be the tools used to identify the parallel patterns in the code and to implement those patterns efficiently with OpenMP and / or OpenACC.
Another motivation within CESGAHACK 3 is to establish a collaborative relationship with each team and create success stories after the hackathon in order to increase the impact of their work.
The jury will evaluate the participants and the winners will be awarded an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti sponsored by NVIDIA.
