2020 IXPUG Annual Meeting
This Intel eXtreme Performance User Group (IXPUG) conference is focused on all aspects of adopting and employing state-of-the-art technologies and practices for optimal application execution. This includes accelerators (e.g., co-processors, FPGAs, GPUs), as well as topics related to system hardware beyond the processor (memory, interconnects, etc.), software tools, programming models, HPC workloads, troubleshooting, and more — all with a focus on Intel platforms. The conference will provide an interactive experience, organized around key themes associated with high-performance computing, data analytics, artificial intelligence (machine learning and deep learning), cloud computing, and more. The conference will feature keynote presentations, invited expert talks, 30-minute technical sessions, 10-to-15-minute lightning talks, and two-hour hands-on tutorials. Speakers come from a wide variety of HPC organizations and share their real-world experiences. Attendees will encounter an open forum, through which Intel and renowned industry experts will share best practices and techniques for maximizing software productivity and efficiency. The conference will provide an opportunity to share experiences in leveraging Intel architectures and technologies with all attendees, including expert software developers, scientists, researchers, academics, systems analysts, students, and end-users, etc. The challenges surrounding application performance and scalability will be covered across at all levels, including tuning and optimization of diverse sets of applications on large-scale HPC systems.
