Explanatory session on the use of the next generation supercomputer SX-ACE

2014-9-2 (Tue) 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Osaka University's Cybermedia Center will hold an explanatory session on the next generation supercomputer SX-ACE on Tuesday, September 2.
The next generation supercomputer SX-ACE at The Cybermedia Center, Osaka University has a clustered architecture. In order to achieve its high performance, a parallelization technique based on the understanding of its architecture is required. This explanatory session will introduce the structures of hardware and software as well as how to use the SX-ACE supercomputer, which will go into operation from December at the center. The instructor will talk about what will be needed for using SX-ACE, making comparisons regarding common and differing points between the existing supercomputer systems SX-9 and SX-8R and the SX-ACE.

A lecturer from NEC, the SX-ACE supplier, will also answer your questions. Individuals interested in SX-ACE are encouraged to attend.
