IXPUG Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Session 

Tuesday, November 14th, 5:15pm - 7pm

Denver Convention Center, Room 603 

Recent deployments of large-scale Intel Xeon Phi processor (Knight Landing)-based systems have provided users with early experiences on many-core processors. This BoF, conducted by the Intel Xeon Phi Users Group (IXPUG), will provide a forum for application and tool developers, HPC center staff, and industry experts to discuss their successes and challenges. This BoF will showcase code optimization successes, particularly, how to achieve usability, scalability and productivity on KNL-based systems through invited talks, a panel session and a community Q&A. IXPUG is an independent users group for anyone interested in application performance on the Intel Xeon Phi.
