PATC Systems workshop: Programming ARM based Prototypes

Formación técnica
11 May 2018
PATC course organized by Barcelona Supercomputing Center


  • Get a comprehensive view of the architecture of the heterogeneous ARM-based platforms deployed in the framework of the Mont-Blanc project, including ARM multicore clusters based on mobile and server technology.
  • Allow attendees to compile and test scientific codes on innovative ARM-based systems with the support of Mont-Blanc experts.
  • Understand and correlate performance and power consumption figures of scientific codes.


High performance computer architecture: The architecture of several ARM-based HPC platforms, deployed and tested during the last four years of research and development within the Mont-Blanc projects will be presented.

Tools for compilation, evaluation, optimization: A complete software stack for performing scientific computing on ARM-based systems, including compilers, performance libraries and performance analysis tools will be made available.

Low-Power Solutions - Monitoring and investigation of the power consumption of scientific codes running on innovative ARM-based platforms will be possible


Standard HPC users, with some knowledge in ARM CPU/GPU architecture (recommended, but not required).

BSc (or higher) degree in science or engineering with basic knowledge in parallel computing.

We foresee some hands-on session, therefore attendees should bring their own laptop

Level: INTERMEDIATE: for participants with some theoretical and practical knowledge (All courses are designed for specialists with at least 1st cycle degree)
