Learn how to get the most out of today's acceleration hardware direct from experts, code examples, and more

Plug into the oneAPI Dev Summit at SC21 – wherever you are


Paid Post AI, machine learning, and HPC promise to help humanity crack some of the biggest challenges we face today.

However, it will be difficult to solve these problems if a mix of competing hardware and software architectures is used; it is hard to fully harness the power of accelerated computing, whatever the underlying architecture, in these circumstances.

That’s why the oneAPI specification, and its promise of a cross-industry, open, standards-based unified programming model for accelerator architectures, is so significant, and why you should dive into the oneAPI Dev Summit at SC21 on November 14.

This live virtual developer event kicks off with an overview of the Intel eXtreme Performance Users Group (IXPUG) followed by an expert panel discussing how oneAPI has been adopted and supported at high-profile facilities worldwide. You’ll also learn how to join the IXPUG.

The conference then splits into three tracks covering Data Parallel C++; AI analytics and FPGAs; and libraries.

The speaker line-up features researchers and architects from cutting-edge organisations including Codeplay, the University of Edinburgh, Argonne National Laboratory, Heidelberg University, EY, and Instituto Superior Técnico at the Universidade de Lisboa as well as top engineers at Intel.

That means you can delve into topics such as how to accelerate epistasis detection on Intel CPUs and discrete GPUs using Intel Advisor, and how to develop for Nvidia GPUs using SYCL with oneAPI.

You can dive into using spatial DPC++ constructs to accelerate algorithms with FPGAs, and learn about speeding up deep learning with the Intel Extension for PyTorch, to be demonstrated with a MedMNIST classification decathlon.

You can also get insight into the performance, portability, and heterogeneous components of SeisSol, which is set to run on upcoming Intel HPC GPUs, and find out more about AI analytics with oneAPI.

Things wrap up with a panel diving into oneAPI's software abstraction for heterogeneous computing, featuring contributors from Intel, Xilinx, Codeplay, and Heidelberg University.

This virtual event also includes a happy hour – more details on that to come. This is a whole day of in-depth material that will cue you up for SC21. And you can enjoy it all virtually, for free. Just head to the registration page here.
