2016 CSCS-USI Summer School, Ticino, Switzerland

The Summer School 2016 on Effective High Performance Computing will focus on the effective exploitation of HPC systems. The Summer School is dedicated to Master and Ph.D. students.

Traditional parallel programming approaches, based on the message-passing paradigm, are no longer sufficient to fulfil this task, and innovative solutions need to be addressed. During the two weeks of the school a number of such solutions will be presented. The MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, OpenACC programming models will be introduced, together with scientific libraries and efficient I/O solutions. Their effective combined usage, in order to achieve an ideal exploitation of large hybrid architectures, will be discussed and experimented with extensive practical and exercise lab sessions to help clarify and consolidate the theoretical material presented.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Message passing programming model and the MPI standard
  • Shared memory systems and the OpenMP programming model
  • Scientific libraries
  • Efficient data I/O
  • GPU programming with CUDA and OpenACC
  • Code optimization
  • Scientific visualisation

Machine Learning for Big Data Analytics: Scaling In with Containers while Scaling Out on Clusters - Webinar, Online

Armed with nothing more than an Apache Spark toting laptop, you have all the trappings required to prototype the application of Machine Learning against your data-science needs. Of course, as soon as your prototyping proves successful, you'll want to scale out to embrace the volume, variety and velocity that characterizes today’s Big Data demands in production.

This is where offerings from Univa shine - i.e., in making the transition from prototype to production completely seamless. For some use cases, it makes sense to scale-in Spark based applications within Docker containers via Univa Grid Engine Container Edition; whereas in others, Spark is interfaced - as a Mesos-compliant framework - with Univa Universal Resource Broker, to permit scaling out on a cluster. In both scenarios, your production Spark applications are scheduled alongside other classes of workload - without a need for dedicated resources.

You will learn the following:

  • Overview of Apache Spark as a platform for Deep Learning - from Python-based Jupyter Notebooks to Spark's Machine Learning library MLlib
  • Overview of prototyping Machine Learning via Apache Spark on a laptop - without and within Docker containers
  • Introductions to Univa Grid Engine Container Edition and Univa Universal Resource Broker
  • Overview of production Big Data Analytics platforms for Machine Learning:
    • Docker-containerized Apache Spark and Univa Grid Engine Container Edition
    • Apache Spark plus Univa Universal Resource Broker
    • Introducing support for GPUs
  • Use case example - using Machine Learning to classify data from Twitter without and within Docker containers
  • Summary and next steps

8th International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval - KDIR 2016, Porto, Portugal

Knowledge Discovery is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, novel, potentially useful and meaningful patterns from data, often based on underlying large data sets. A major aspect of Knowledge Discovery is data mining, i.e. applying data analysis and discovery algorithms that produce a particular enumeration of patterns (or models) over the data. Knowledge Discovery also includes the evaluation of patterns and identification of which add to knowledge.

Information retrieval (IR) is concerned with gathering relevant information from unstructured and semantically fuzzy data in texts and other media, searching for information within documents and for metadata about documents, as well as searching relational databases and the Web. Automation of information retrieval enables the reduction of what has been called "information overload".

Information retrieval can be combined with knowledge discovery to create software tools that empower users of decision support systems to better understand and use the knowledge underlying large data sets.

Conference topics include:

  • BioInformatics & Pattern Discovery
  • Business Intelligence Applications
  • Clustering and Classification Methods
  • Collaborative Filtering
  • Concept Mining
  • Context Discovery
  • Data Analytics

8th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing - KMIS 2016, Porto, Portugal

Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline concerned with the analysis and technical support of practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute and enable the adoption and leveraging of good practices embedded in collaborative settings and, in particular, in organisational processes. Effective knowledge management is an increasingly important source of competitive advantage, and a key to the success of contemporary organisations, bolstering the collective expertise of its employees and partners.

Information Sharing (IS) is a term used for a long time in the information technology (IT) lexicon, related to data exchange, communication protocols and technological infrastructures. Although standardization is indeed an essential element for sharing information, IS effectiveness requires going beyond the syntactic nature of IT and delve into the human functions involved in the semantic, pragmatic and social levels of organisational semiotics. The two areas are intertwined as information sharing is the foundation for knowledge management.

Conference topics include:

  • Best Practices & Communities of Practice
  • Business intelligence & CRM
  • Business Process Management
