Webinar on performance tuning and optimization of GROMACS

9 May 2016 Brussels - Want to know more about how to get the best value from your simulation settings and hardware for GROMACS perfomance? This webinar will provide a quick overview of GROMACS internals and how that affects how fast your simulation runs. A few straightforward considerations can often improve your time-to-science. The webinar will cover the use of GPUs and CPUs, in a single node and in parallel, including the gmx tune_pme optimization tool. Tips for benchmarking with GROMACS will also be provided. The webinar presenter is Mark Abraham, GROMACS project manager. The webinar will take place on May 11, 2016 between 16:00-17:00 CET (Central European Time).

This is the second webinar in the new educational series on computational methods and applications for biomolecular research. The series covers broad topics related to the latest development of major software packages; their application to modelling and simulation; best practices for performance tuning and efficient usage on HPC and novel architectures; introductory tutorials for novel users and much more.

The webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions. They are a great opportunity to interact with the main code developers.

Online registration is free at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2048186027704998147 . After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the webinar.
