IXPUG Birds-of-a-Feather

Achieving Performance on Large-Scale Intel Xeon-Based System



Date: Thursday, November 15th 2018, 12:15pm - 13:35pm

Registration: The workshop is held in conjunction with SC 2018 in Dallas. To attend IXPUG BoF, you have to register for SC. More information is on the SC 2018 Website.

Event Description: This BoF,organized by Intel Extreme Computing Users Group(IXPUG), will focus on achieving performance at scale on large Xeon-based systems. The community has gained experience in deloying generation of Xeon Phi and more recently the Xeon Scalable family of processors and is moving to achieve sustained performance.
