Join us for this Arm SVE Hackathon at SC18 in Dallas, TX

Arm's Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) has arrived, but what does SVE mean for typical high performance computing workloads and how do you use it?

This hands-on, non-NDA event will present SVE today and show how common HPC codes can be recompiled to take advantage of large vector lengths without code modifications

Agenda Outline

Thursday 15 November (10.00am until 5.00pm)

• 10:00 to 12:00 - Latest SVE developments

  • Hear short presentations from community members including SVE tool developers, application teams and hardware developers, who will introduce core concepts and lay the roadmap for future SVE applications.

• 12:00 to 12.30 - Lunch provided

• 12:35 to 17:00 - Hands on with SVE

  • The entirely hands-on afternoon session will introduce the Arm HPC Compiler and Arm Instruction Emulator and show how to generate SVE-enabled binaries targeting popular vector lengths on an HPC-class Cavium ThunderX2 cluster. The session will include contributions from people who are running and porting applications for SVE.

*Please note - you are welcome to attend all or part of the sessions as your schedule allows.
