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.
