General description This subject will increase the knowledge on parallel programming acquired by the students in the previous quarter in subjects such as "Parallel Programming" and "Programming of heterogeneous architectures". The aim will be that the students learn to optimize parallel codes for big parallel architectures or current supercomputers, using for their tests the resources provided by the Centro de Supercomputación de Galicia (CESGA) and the Group of Architecture of Computers (GAC) of the Universidade da Coruña (UDC). We will focus on those aspects of the parallel applications that usually penalize performance, such as the communications, load unbalance, memory access patterns or the management of I/O. We will also tackle multiplatform computing, which allows to take advantage of the task level parallelism by using several hardware accelerators, as well as hybrid computing, where the same application uses several parallel programming paradigms in order to obtain good performance in clusters with multi-core computers and/or hardware accelerators.
