About SiPE

So far, the SiPE workshops have reached over 2000 people at 362 institutions, agencies, companies and organizations in 51 US states and territories and 17 other countries:

  • 251 academic institutions;
  • 44 government agencies;
  • 49 private companies;
  • 18 non-governmental/not-for-profit organizations.

SiPE is targeted at an audience of not only computer scientists but especially scientists and engineers, including a mixture of undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, staff and professionals.

These workshops focus on fundamental issues of High Performance Computing (HPC) as they relate to Computational and Data-enabled Science & Engineering (CDS&E), including:

  • overview of HPC;
  • the storage hierarchy;
  • instruction-level parallelism;
  • high performance compilers;
  • shared memory parallelism (e.g., OpenMP);
  • distributed parallelism (e.g., MPI);
  • HPC application types and parallel paradigms;
  • multicore optimization;
  • high throughput computing;
  • accelerator computing (e.g., GPUs);
  • scientific and I/O libraries;
  • scientific visualization.

The key philosophy of the SiPE workshops is that HPC-based software should be maintainable, extensible and, most especially, portable across platforms, and should be sufficiently flexible that it can adapt to, and adopt, emerging HPC paradigms.
