Workshop Program and details of the Keynote address will be made available in October 2019


KEYNOTE: Perlmutter- A 2020 Pre-Exascale GPU-accelerated System for NERSC: Architecture and Application Performance Optimization

Dr. Nicholas (Nick) James Wright, the advanced technologies group lead and the NERSC chief architect , will be giving the Keynote at the workshop.

Bio

Nicholas J. Wright

Nicholas J. Wright is the Perlmutter chief architect and the advanced technologies group lead at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) center. He led the effort to optimize the architecture of the Perlmutter machine, the first NERSC platform designed to meet needs of both large scale simulation and data analysis from experimental facilities. Nicholas has a Ph.D. from the University of Durham in computational chemistry and has been with NERSC since 2009.

Abstract

In 2020 NERSC will take delivery of its next-generation supercomputer, Perlmutter. In this talk we will describe the architecture of the machine and how it was optimized to meet the performance and usability goals of NERSC’s more than 7000 users. We will discuss the current usage of ifferent programming models at NERSC and our plans for supporting them on Perlmutter, and on future machines.


KEYNOTE:

Dr. Jack Wells, the Director of Science for the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee, USA will be giving the Keynote at the workshop.
