The Cray Centre of Excellence for HECToR and EPCC will deliver this course on the Cray XE6 and Multicore programming over three days. It will introduce new and existing users to the more powerful and advanced features of the hardware and software stack available.
Attendees would benefit from experience with or an interest in Cray hardware. There will also be many opportunities for attendees to discuss their applications with members of EPCC and the Cray Centre of Excellence. The organisers encourage attendees to make their own applications available for testing during practical sessions.
This course is funded by the PRACE project and is free to all.
