Cori KNL: Intel Tools Training and Hackathon, May 21-22, 2019

NERSC will host a two-day training event for users on Cori KNL Programming and Optimization Using Intel Tools from Tuesday, May 21 to Wednesday, May 22. The first day of the training will be mostly presentations from Intel staff, and the second day will be in the format of a hackathon that users can bring your own application codes and get hands-on help from NERSC and Intel staff on KNL optimization using Intel tools.
