Dardel is a Swedish flagship supercomputer operated by PDC at KTH in Stockholm. It is an HPE Cray EX system with AMD EPYC™ 64 core CPUs and AMD Instinct MI250X GPUs. Compute time on Dardel is available for academic research via NAISS.
This hackathon is for teams of research software developers who want to accomplish one or more of the following goals:
During the hackathon, project teams will be paired up with expert mentors from HPE, AMD, PDC and ENCCS who will guide them during the hackathon to accomplish their stated goals. Teams should have at least two members who are prepared to work full-time on their projects for the duration of the hackathon. We furthermore also strongly encourage diversity in project teams.
This hackathon will take place over four days split over two weeks. The first day of the hackathon, March 7, will be online while the main work will be hosted on-site on KTH Campus at Drottning Kristinas väg 61, 114 28 in Stockholm, Sweden, on March 14-16.
No advanced GPU skills are required, but it is helpful for teams to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling. Team members should get familiar with aspects of the AMD ROCm™ open software and the AMD HIP programming language (https://docs.amd.com/).
There are different ways to reach the city from Arlanda airport.
