The High Performance Computing Symposium (HPCS) is Canada’s foremost supercomputing multidisciplinary conference. The nation’s extended research and academic community, as well as partners from business and industry, gather to learn more about the current state and future direction of computational research and HPC technologies. HPCS will host its 28th annual event in Halifax, NS on June 23 - 27, 2014 in partnership with ACEnet. The first two days (June 23 & 24, 2014) will consist of tutorial workshops covering introductory and advanced tools for high performance computing. The technical sessions of the symposium will take place Wednesday through Friday (June 25 – 27, 2014).
HPCVL's "Complex Data and Analytics in Medical Research", October 21 & 22, 2014 in Toronto
Compute Canada/Calcul Canada will be sending 10 students and researchers at Canadian post-secondary institutions to the 5th International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences. This is a great opportunity for Canadian students and postdocs to attend an Advanced Summer School on High Performance Computing Challenges, all expenses paid. The workshop is aimed primarily at graduate students or postdocs; however, junior faculty or advanced undergraduates are also welcome to apply. Attendees will be expected to have some experience in HPC parallel programming (for instance, MPI, OpenMP, or CUDA/OpenCL), preferably on software used in successful research projects, and must be at least 18 years of age at time of application. Note that the application deadline for this event has now passed. Click here for details.
HPCVL is proud to announce that we were selected as one of the "Best 10 Research Facilities" in Canada. The editor and publisher of Re$earch Money magazine helped compile a list of nine facilities and one company. The Backbone 200 consists of organizations, people, events and products that stand out, that contribute to our competitiveness and economic strengths, and-as in the case of our world-leading game developers-our ability to have fun and make money.

HPCVL provides a secure environment and computing resources for the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI). The Ontario Brain Institute is creating an extensive brain research database called the Brain-CODE that will allow researchers to work faster and more efficiently. Read more here.
The "Double-layer Master-Slave Model" (DMSM) combines an MPI-based approach for workload distribution on a cluster with local OpenMP-based task scheduling for multicore nodes. It is therefore ideally suited to exploit clusters with multicore and multithreaded nodes. At HPCVL, we have implemented this model in the form of a library that requires minimal user input. The library is freely available for download in the form of Fortran90 and C source code. Since only standard language features were used in the development, it can be deployed easily on multiple platforms. For details, see our FAQ file, or the User's Manual.
