Event Description: The Intel eXtreme Performance Users Group (IXPUG) is an active community-led forum for sharing industry best practices, techniques, tools, etc., for maximizing efficiency on Intel platforms and products. IXPUG Workshop at HPC Asia 2024 is an open workshop on high-performance computing applications, systems, and architecture with Intel technologies. This is a half-day workshop with invited talks and contributed papers. The workshop aims to bring together software developers and technology experts to share challenges, experiences, and best-practice methods for the optimization of HPC, Machine Learning, and Data Analytics workloads on Intel® Xeon® processors, Intel® Xeon® CPU Max Series, Intel® Data Center GPU Max Series, Intel® Gaudi®, Intel® FPGAs, and any related hardware/software platforms. The workshop will cover application performance, and scalability challenges at all levels — from intra-node performance up to large-scale compute systems. Any research aspect related to Intel HPC and AI products is welcome to be presented in this workshop.
