Call for Abstracts: submissions are due Friday, August 12, 2022 (AoE) via EasyChair

The 2022 IXPUG Annual Conference will be hosted by Argonne National Laboratory. HPC users and enthusiasts across the globe are invited to attend and participate. Join us to share experiences with all aspects of adopting and employing state-of-the-art technologies and practices for optimal application execution on Intel XPU platforms. Through our interactive, open forum IXPUG brings together speakers across supercomputing, including renowned industry leaders, and experts from Intel. Together we share real-world experiences, best practices, and techniques for maximizing software productivity and efficiency.

If you are interested in presenting a talk, or tutorial, please submit a short abstract by Friday, August 12, 2022 (AoE) via EasyChair. While in-person presentations are preferred, pre-recorded videos will be allowed as presentation in exceptional cases. Published or work-in-progress research in respective areas are encouraged.

Topics of Interest:

  • Implications of workload behavior on system design at extreme scale (Power, Reliability, Scalability, Performance, Processor Design, Memory System, I/O)
  • Software environments and tools for computing at extreme scale (Instrumentation, Debugging/Correctness, Thread and Process Management, Libraries and Language Development)
  • Experience with incorporating machine learning and deep learning in HPC applications and workflows including performance analysis, optimization, and best practices
