MaX Webinar on flagship codes: CP2K  

Modena - 24.06.2020 - MaX Webinar on flagship codes: CP2K
The 4th MaX Webinar of the series on its flagship codes is dedicated to the CP2K code. The webinar will take place next 24th of June at 11am (CEST).

The Webinar will provide an accurate overview of the HPC libraries developed at CSCS in order to accelerate electronic structure code such as CP2K and Quantum ESPRESSO. These libraries are (1) DBCSR, (2) COSMA, (3) SpFFT and (4) SIRIUS).

CSCS is working on several HPC libraries which can be adopted by electronic structure codes in order to run them efficiently on current and next-generation hybrid architectures (both NVIDIA and AMD).

DBCSR is a library designed to efficiently perform sparse matrix-matrix multiplication, among other operations. It is MPI and OpenMP parallel and can exploit NVIDIA and AMD GPUs via CUDA and HIP.

COSMA is a parallel, high-performance, GPU-accelerated, matrix multiplication algorithm that is communication-optimal for all combinations of matrix dimensions, number of processors and memory sizes, without the need for any parameter tuning.

SpFFT is a 3D FFT library for sparse frequency domain data written in C++ with support for MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, and ROCm. It was originally intended for transforms of data with spherical cutoff in frequency domain, as required by some computational materials science codes. For distributed computations, SpFFT uses a slab decomposition in space domain and pencil decomposition in frequency domain (all sparse data within a pencil must be on one rank).

SIRIUS is a domain specific library for electronic structure calculations. It implements pseudopotential plane wave (PP-PW) and full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) methods and is designed for GPU acceleration of popular community codes such as Exciting, Elk and Quantum ESPRESSO. The library is open-source (BSD 2-clause licence) and is freely available. SIRIUS is written in C++11 with MPI, OpenMP and CUDA/ROCm programming models. SIRIUS is organised as a collection of classes that abstract away the different building blocks of DFT self-consistency cycle.
