NERSC is now accepting applications for the NERSC Exascale Science Application Program (NESAP). Through NESAP, NERSC will partner with approximately 20 application teams to help prepare codes for the Cori architecture. A key feature of the Cori system is the Intel Knights Landing processor which will have over 60 cores per node with multiple hardware threads on each core, and will also include high bandwidth, on-package memory. The program will partner application teams with resources at NERSC, Cray, and Intel, and will last through the acceptance of the Cori system.

NERSC's next supercomputer, Cori, will using the Xeon Phi processor architecture. In order to achieve high performance on Xeon Phi, users will need to find additional parallelism in application and take advantage of longer vector units. Intel is offering training sessions nationally, free to all NERSC users. Click on the link below to register.
