Workshop on 'Using the next-generation Cray XMT (uRiKA) for Large Scale Data Analytics' - 21-22 May 2012


CSCS is pleased to announce the workshop on "Using the next-generation Cray XMT (uRiKA) for Large Scale Data Analytics" to be held at the new Supercomputer Center in Lugano on May 21-22, 2012. 

The next-generation Cray XMT is a massively multithreaded, high performance computer system built for data analytics.  The system supports a semantic database capable of processing SPARQL queries against a RDF triple store.  The system can also be programmed in C and C++.  Experts from Cray Inc and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will present talks on the system architecture, programming model, semantic database, and programming best practices.  Attendees will learn both how to use the resident database and write highly-scalable parallel programs to solve complex data analysis problems.


Registration deadlineMay 14, 2012.
