Mini Tutorial: Babbage: the Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) Testbed System at NERSC

Babbage is the Intel Xeon Phi MIC test system at NERSC, which can be used to help prepare user applications for the next generation NERSC production system named Cori.

In this talk, we will give an overview of Babbage.  Topics to be covered include: the MIC architecture and programming considerations; system configuration and programming environment; how to compile and run; some tips and examples of tuning kernels and application performance.
