CURIE is currently being upgraded with a 1.5 Pflop/s partition of x86 thin nodes, after being extended with a 200 Tflop/s hybrid partition based on the latest NVIDIA M2090 GPUs. Altogether this will lead to a global peak performance of more than 1.8 Pflop/s.
CURIE hybrid partition, which will be opened to European scientists through preparatory access calls before the end of 2011, will be the first large scale hybrid system available into the PRACE RI.
Co-organized by CEA and GENCI, the PRACE Autumn School will focus on advanced hybrid programming and benefit in exclusivity from this brand new CURIE hybrid GPU partition for hands on.
The preliminary programme includes:
1. Day 1
2. Day 2
3. Day 3: higher level programming
The programme committee formed by Guillaume Colin de Verdière (CEA), Stéphane Requena (GENCI), Eric Boyer (CINES) and Sadaf Alam (CSCS) will finalize both the agenda and the speaker list by mid-september.
Attendance is free for all academics affiliated to PRACE member countries at http://www.prace-ri.eu/PRACE-Autumn-School-2011
