2018 MaX Hackathon (Barcelona, 16-20 July 2018) (No replies)
The MaX Centre of Excellence is pleased to announce the 2018 MaX Hackathon (Barcelona, 16-20 July 2018), a coding week dedicated to exascaling in electronic structure codes.
MaX - Materials Design at the Exascale - is an EU-H2020 Centre of Excellence aimed at driving the exascale transition in the domain of materials science by pushing software development and performance, uptake of HPC technology, and hardware-software codesign for a set of selected applications, the MaX flagship codes: Quantum ESPRESSO, SIESTA, Fleur, Yambo, and AiiDA.
The 2018 MaX-Hackathon will offer an informal brain-storming environment and practical coding sessions, including:
- Working groups active in the development of each flagship code, eg targeting the development of new features, performance improvements, performance portability to new architectures including GPUs.
- Advanced training for developers on selected topics (novel parallel paradigms, emerging MPI and OpenMP features/standards, support of GPUs & HW heterogeneity, HDF5 and parallel IO).
- Transversal coding activities (eg parallel IO, support of common electronic structure formats, GPU support).
Venue and dates: Barcelona, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC); 16-20th July 2018.
More info, including the application form, updated work plan, and participant list, can be found at http://www.max-centre.eu/max-hackathon/.
Deadline for applications is June 23, 2018.
A few fellowships are available to partially cover travel and accommodation expenses
