The Intel® Xeon Phi™ User's Group (IXPUG) is an independent users group whose mission is to provide a forum for the free exchange of information that enhances the usability and efficiency of scientific and technical applications running on large High Performance Computing (HPC) systems using the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor. IXPUG is administered by representatives of member sites that operate large Phi-based HPC systems. IXPUG holds meetings and other activities as determined by its members to further its mission. Participants include staff from member sites, users of member sites’ facilities, Intel staff, and others with an interest in using the Intel® Xeon Phi™ for scientific computing on large HPC systems. Participation in IXPUG meetings and other activities is open to anyone interested in using the Phi for large-scale scientific or technical computing. If you would like to hear more regarding the IXPUG community, please register as a user at https://www.ixpug.org/join. The week of events will include an Intel® Parallel Computing Center (Intel® PCC) members only (NDA required) session, followed by the IXPUG Workshop and Tutorials, which are free to public. We encourage all to join the various sessions hosted by IT4Innovations, VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
