In this seminar, we will study influential and classic research papers in high-performance computing covering the topics of Models and Foundations, Applications and Algorithms, Computer Architecture, Optimization Techniques and Programming models.
You will be assigned a topic and 1-3 papers that you should read, understand, and summarize as a scientific report and present to your fellow students. The final results (report and presentation) are however just one aspect of the seminar. Equally important is the process and the intermediate steps how you arrive at these results. These skills shall prepare you for successfully writing and defending your Master's thesis.
Hence, at the end of this seminar you:
- understand the scientific publishing process
- will be familiar with the canonical structure of a scientific paper
- can write a report following the scientific and technical conventions of the field
- have practical experience in using the LaTeX typesetting environment
- have acquired in-depth knowledge of the assigned topic of high-performance computing
- learns how to write a peer review evaluation report for papers from fellow students
A preliminary list of topics is shown below.
Due to the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic the seminar will be held as a remote course that uses self-study, personal feedback and mutual feedback as methods.
