The session will cover:

  • Intel Xeon Phi architecture: purpose, organization, pre-requisites for good performance, future technology
  • Programming models: native, offload, heterogeneous clustering
  • Parallel frameworks: automatic vectorization, OpenMP, MPI
  • Optimization methods: general,  scalar math, vectorization, multithreading, memory access, communication and special topics
