VI-HPS and the French Maison de la Simulation PRACE Advanced Training Center organize the 11th edition of the VI-HPS Tuning Workshop, a series of workshops given by tools developers for application developers. Participants are invited to bring their own codes to the workshop to tune them with the help of experts.

Goals of this workshop:
* Give an overview of the VI-HPS programming tools suite
* Explain the functionality of individual tools, and how to use them effectively
* Offer hands-on experience and expert assistance using the tools

The Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS) is an initiative to promote the development and integration of HPC programming tools, see .

Workshop Overview:

The workshop will be held in English and run from 09:00 to not later than 18:00 each day, with breaks for lunch and refreshments.
There is no fee for participation, however, participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.

Presentations and hands-on sessions are planned on the following topics:
* Score-P instrumentation and measurement
* Scalasca performance analysis toolset
* Vampir trace analysis toolset
* TAU performance system
* MAQAO analysis toolset
* Intel VTune Amplifier XE profiler

Important Dates:

April 8th: registration deadline

Classroom capacity is limited, therefore priority will be given to applicants with parallel codes already running on the workshop computer system, and those bringing codes from similar systems to work on.
Participants are therefore encouraged to prepare their own MPI, OpenMP and hybrid OpenMP/MPI parallel application codes for analysis.

See for more details.
