Lühikursuse kirjeldus: Computer simulations are used nowadays in most areas of science and engineering. Complex models and large amounts of data allow for obtaining accurate solutions. However, such approach imposes huge computation requirements. Efficient use of the computational resources becomes fundamental for obtaining results in due time. High Performance Computing (HPC) focuses in running advanced application programs efficiently, reliably and fast.
In this course we will provide an overview on HPC by motivating its need with examples in different areas of science, by describing current architectures with ubiquitous parallel resources, and introducing some of the most commonly used parallel programming models in a very practical way.
Lektorist: José-Ramón Herrero holds a position as associate professor in the Computer Architecture Department at UPC, BarcelonaTech. He has been teaching in the Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB) since 1994 where he has taught fifteen different courses corresponding to several areas (Computer Architecture, Operating Systems, and Parallel Programming). He has carried out the duties of Vice-Dean Head of Academic Studies and Vice-dean for Institutional and International Relations at Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB). He has combined these managements and teaching tasks with research in HPC, mainly in the field of High Performance Scientific Computing.
