5th JCAHPC SeminarThe Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC) is an organization jointly established between the Center for Computational Sciences of the University of Tsukuba and the Information Technology Center, the University of Tokyo. JCAHPC designed and introduced, as well as operates the Oakforest-PACS System (OFP), which has the highest performance level among supercomputers in Japan (HPL performance 13.55 PFLOPS. Ranked 7th in the world on the Top 500 list announced in June 2017, and 1st in Japan. Intel Xeon/Phi (Knights Landing), 8,208 units mounted). By cooperating on the operation and management of this facility, the two centers contribute to the promotion of advanced computational science, and to the promotion of academics as well as science and technology in Japan.
The OFP became fully operational on December 1, 2016, and has already produced various results from many users. At this report session on the use of the system, six selected users have been requested to present the results they have obtained through the use of OFP, and to deliver a lecture on acceleration and optimization methods. Those who are considering the use of manycore systems such as OFP and Intel Xeon/Phi going forward are invited to attend the event.
This report session on the use of the system will be held at the Kashiwa Campus at the University of Tokyo, and will also be broadcast remotely to the University of Tokyo (Hongo) and the University of Tsukuba.
