Abstract: This is a full-day tutorial on programming for the Cray XC system with Intel Knights Landing (KNL), the second generation Intel Xeon Phi. Attendees will learn how to use the Cray Programming Environment to port and optimize applications for KNL systems. We will describe the KNL architecture and emphasize some of the main aspects related to KNL features, such as the high-bandwidth memory, and how to optimize for them with the memory directives and the Cray memory analysis assistant tool. We will also focus on experiences and best-practice for optimization of scientific applications on KNL systems.
