The members of the group José Manuel García Salmerón and Francisco José Orts Gómez attended the eighth edition of the Programming and Tuning Massively Parallel Systems summer school (PUMPS) from July 2 to 6, 2017 in Barcelona and whose organization was in charge of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, the University of Illinois, the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya and the HiPEAC network. The objective of the eighth edition has been focused on increasing the skills of researchers and teachers with the most innovative techniques in the development of parallel applications using GPUs.
 
Some remarkable lectures are Wen-mei Hwu (University of Illinois) and David Kirk (NVIDIA Corporation). Some of the topics that have been covered during the course are:
 
Deep Learning
OpenACC, Python, and Mathematica on GPUs
CUDA Algorithmic Optimization Strategies
Dealing with Sparse and Dynamic data
Reducing Output Interference
Controlling Load Imbalance and Divergence
Acceleration of Collective Operations
Dynamic Parallelism and HyperQ
Debugging and Profiling CUDA Code
Multi-GPU Execution
Introduction to OmpSs and to the Paraver analysis tool
