Recommended Sessions:


Vendor Showdown Session

Monday, 23 June | 02:05 pm - 02:17 pm | Hall 1

Steve Oberlin

In just one afternoon, 18 leading vendor representatives have max. three slides each to present their company mission and HPC portfolio and to carve out why their products help to meet the mission. They then have to answer four tricky questions from the two moderators.


Programming models and tools Track

Monday, 23 June | 04:00 pm - 04:20 pm | Hall 2

Duncan Poole (About the speaker)
Manager of Strategic Alliances for GPU Computing, NVIDIA

This talk will focus on the emergence of OpenACC as a viable programming model for accelerated computing.

It will discuss what motivated the creators of the standard, and how OpenACC benefits developers in relation to other computing standards. The current OpenACC 2.0 standard will be explored, both in terms of available commercial implementations and open source projects. Lastly we will give examples to show where it is demonstrating success, and what challenges must be faced to gain broader adoption.


BOF: Experiences with & the Future of OpenACC

Tuesday, 24 June | 10:00 am - 11:00 am | Hall 5

Guido Juckeland, TU Dresden
Duncan Poole, NVIDIA
Will Sawyer, CSCS
Thomas Schulthess, CSCS
Nathan Sidwell, Mentor Graphics

This BoF brings together the European OpenACC user community to discuss the recent and future changes to the OpenACC specification. The focus of this BoF is the gathering of feedback from users on OpenACC 2.0 and the discussion of upcoming features (such as deep copy, performance tools API, etc) in the next release.


Advancements in the NVIDIA GPU Ecosystem

Tuesday, 24 June | 02:20 pm - 02:40 pm | Exhibition Hall #660

Timothy Lanfear

Computational researchers, scientists and engineers are rapidly shifting to computing solutions running on GPUs as this offers significant advantages in performance and energy efficiency. This presentation will give an update about the latest GPU developments from NVIDIA. Furthermore it will cover the different approaches to program and to use GPUs with a special focus on new CUDA 6 features.


Faster Design Cycles with High Performance Hardware in the Cloud

Wednesday, 25 June | 09:20 am - 09:40 am | Hall 2

Ilari Hänninen (About the speaker)
Senior Application Engineer, CST – Computer Simulation Technology

CST offers accurate, efficient computational solutions for electromagnetic design and analysis. Our user-friendly 3D EM simulation software CST STUDIO SUITE enables engineers or scientists to choose the most appropriate method for the design and optimization of devices operating in a wide range of frequencies.


HPC for Oil & Gas Exploration: Performance & Usability

Wednesday, 25 June | 11:30 am - 11:50 am | Hall 2

Dr. Nicola Bienati (About the speaker)
Senior Geophysicist, Eni E&P

Oil and Gas Exploration industry is probably one of the toughest clients for HPC systems and HPC software. Indeed in order to maximize the probability of successfully identifying and accurately localize hydrocarbon reservoirs it is necessary to process and analyze very large seismic datasets (having the size of tens of Terabytes) subject to strict time constraints, and by using extremely computationally demanding algorithms. The heaviest jobs usually run for tens of days using hundreds of nodes. At the same time, HPC resources have to be accessible to users hiding the inherent complexity of HPC systems, since user skills, know-how, and effort have to remain focalized on data processing and data analysis tasks.

ISC'14 Gold Sponsor


About the speaker:

Duncan Poole is responsible for strategic partnerships for NVIDIA's Accelerated Computing Division. His responsibilities reach across the developer tool chain. To drive successful partnerships where engineering interfaces are adopted by external parties building tools for accelerated computing. This includes open standards, compilers, profilers, debuggers, performance analysis tools, compute and communications libraries. He is responsible for NVIDIA's partnerships for MPI and their adoption of GPU Direct RDMA, especially in partnership with Mellanox. Duncan is also the president of OpenACC, and responsible for NVIDIA's membership in OpenMP. These organizations encourage adoption of directives by developers wanting good performance and good portability in their accelerated code.

About Ilari Hänninen

About the speaker:

Ilari Hänninen works for CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG in Darmstadt, Germany, as a Senior Application Engineer with a focus on frequency domain solution methods for electromagnetic simulations. His interests also include large scale electromagnetic simulations and high performance computing. He holds a D.Sc. (Tech) degree in electrical engineering from Aalto University, in Helsinki, Finland.

About Nicola Bienati

About the speaker:

Nicola Bienati is a Senior Geophysicist at Eni e&p. He graduated from Politecnico di Milano in 1995 and received a Ph.D. (2000) in Telecommunication Engineering. After a post-doc at Politecnico di Milano, he joined Eni in 2002. Since then, he has been mainly working on the development of internal seismic imaging and seismic data processing software.
