This course is aimed at reducing your struggle in getting started with computational projects, and make you a more efficient computational scientist. Topics include well-established best practices for developing software as it applies to scientific computations, common numerical techniques and packages, and aspects of high performance computing. While we will introduce the C++ language, in one language or another, students should already have some programming experience. Despite the title, this course is suitable for many physical scientists (chemists, astronomers, ...). Location: SciNet Teaching Room MaRS 1140

This is an introductory course covering programming and computing on GPUs --- graphics processing units --- which are an increasingly common presence in massively parallel computing architectures. The basics of GPU programming will be covered, and students will work through a number of hands on examples. The structuring of data and computations that makes full use of the GPU will be discussed in detail. This year the course will expand to cover the new features available on the GPUs installed on the Graham supercomputer at the University of Waterloo. Students should be able to leave the course with the knowledge necessary to begin developing their own GPU applications. Location: Wilson Hall - New College, WI 1017

Next generation sequencing is revolutionizing the way molecular sciences and biology is performed while providing a population-level understanding of genetic variation in organisms. In this course, you will be introduced to data types in next generation sequencing, analysis methods and best practices to go from raw sequencing data to fully reconstructed genomes. Attendees will also be exposed to variant calling methods to assess genetic variation and the use of parallel methods to scale large analysis on a high-performance computing cluster. Principles in this course can be applied to the other workshops in this stream for genome-wide association analysis and RNA sequencing analysis. Location: Wilson Hall - New College, WI 524

This is an introductory course covering programming and computing on GPUs --- graphics processing units --- which are an increasingly common presence in massively parallel computing architectures. The basics of GPU programming will be covered, and students will work through a number of hands on examples. The structuring of data and computations that makes full use of the GPU will be discussed in detail. This year the course will expand to cover the new features available on the GPUs installed on the Graham supercomputer at the University of Waterloo. Students should be able to leave the course with the knowledge necessary to begin developing their own GPU applications. Location: Wilson Hall - New College, WI 1017

In this one-day session, lectures and hands-on labs are interspersed, and the students will learn the basics of shared memory programming with OpenMP. In particular, we will discuss the OpenMP's execution and memory model, performance, reductions and load balancing.

Debugging and profiling are important steps in developing a new code, or porting an old one to a new machine. In this session, we will discuss the debugging of frequently encountered bugs in serial code with gdb and the debugging of parallel (MPI and threaded) codes. If you bring your own code, and can explain your problem or concerns, we'll also give you advice and work with you to try to improve it. Part of Debugging, Profiling and BYOC, Location: Wilson Hall - New College, WI 1016
