The Performance Optimisation and Productivity (POP) Centre of Excellence
Jon Gibson, Technical Consultant, Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG)
The POP is a centre of excellence in HPC, providing free of charge performance optimisation and productivity services for (your) academic AND industrial code(s) in all domains.
Over the initial two and a half years of the POP Centre of Excellence, we provided 174 services to academic and industrial organisations throughout the EU, identifying and implementing improvements to the performance of their parallel codes. A further three years of this free service commenced in December 2018. This talk will discuss what this pan-European collaboration offers and present a variety of examples in which significant improvements were made to code performance.

About the Presenter
Jon Gibson is a Technical Consultant at the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG). He has 25 years’ experience in scientific programming and has worked for two national HPC services in the UK. He is currently working on the EU Performance Optimisation and Productivity (POP) project.

Let Us Know!
If you have attended a previous Research IT club, we would be very grateful if you could complete a short survey to let us know what you think of the club and if there is anything we could do to make them even better for you!
