EDGE is part of the presentation “Towards Extreme-Scale Nonlinear Earthquake Simulations” at the Seismology of the Americas 2018 conference in Miami, FL. Topics of the presentation are ongoing work, targeting the integration of rupture physics into the code, as well as verification of 32-bit precision and respective optimizations, capable of utilizing deep learning hardware.
All details on the session “Numerical Modeling of Earthquake Ground Motion, Rupture Dynamics and Seismic Wave Propagation” can be found on the event’s homepage. Slides are available from the assets repository
Alex Heinecke’s presentation “Big Applications for Small Matrix Multiplications and Convolutions” at the IXPUG Middle East Conference 2018 at KAUST featured recent optimizations of EDGE for latest silicon. Specifically, Alex covered the efficient use of Knights Mill’s Quad Fused Multiply Add (QFMA) instruction in the inner sparse matrix-tensor kernels of the code.
EDGE is part of the Intel Xeon Phi User Group (IXPUG)’s Birds of a Feather (BoF) session at SC17. The BoF is on Tuesday, November 14 from 5:15 - 7:00 PM and focuses on showcasing recent Xeon Phi code optimization successes, incl. usability, scalability and productivity. Following a series of five short talks, the BoF will conclude with an interactive panel discussion and a community Q&A session. The detailed program reads as follows:
