Global Experts on Extreme Performance: Part 2

Global experts on extreme performance teach about the adoption, support, and application of oneAPI at various compute sites around the world. Panelists talk about the open forum, independent user community, Intel eXtreme Performance User Group, or IXPUG.

Panelists discuss the ongoing work with oneAPI and plans for its support and application at their sites, in addition to elucidating on the expected impact on their user community. The session closes with a brief overview of opportunities for involvement in upcoming IXPUG activities, which focuses on all aspects of adopting and employing state-of-the-art technologies and practices for optimal application on Intel® XPU platforms, real-world experiences, best practices, and techniques for maximizing software productivity and efficiency.

Glenn Brook is a senior solution architect at Cornelis Networks*. Before March of 2021, he was an employee of the University of Tennessee (UT) for 18 years, most recently within the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) between UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. At JICS, Glenn served as the chief technology officer and the director of the application acceleration center of excellence. He also served as the principal investigator for the Beacon project, funded by the National Science Foundation. This project deployed and operated the accelerated computing system ranked number one on the November 2012 Green500 list. Glenn is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Southern Mississippi and the current president of the Intel eXtreme Performance Users Group. He received his PhD in computational engineering from UT in 2008. He resides in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

David Martin is a manager of Industry Partnerships and Outreach at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) at Argonne National Laboratory, where he works with industrial users to harness high performance computing (HPC) and take advantage of the transformational capabilities of modeling and simulation. David brings broad industry and research experience to ALCF. Before joining ALCF, David led the IBM integration of internet standards, grid, and cloud computing into offerings from the IBM Systems and Technology Group. Before IBM, David managed networks and built network services for the worldwide high-energy physics community at Fermilab*. David began his career at AT&T Bell Laboratories, doing paradigm-changing work in software engineering and high-speed networking. David has a bachelor of science degree from Purdue and an master of science degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, both in computer science.

Thomas Steinke is head of the Supercomputing department at the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) and is responsible for HPC research, consulting, and operation. His interest is in heterogeneous systems with innovative processor and memory designs for scientific applications and parallel simulation methods.

Joseph (Joe) Curley is a senior director at Intel whose primary responsibilities include supporting the oneAPI industry initiative, product management of Intel’s oneAPI product implementation, and supporting the oneAPI developer ecosystem. Mr. Curley joined Intel Corporation in 2007 and has served in multiple other strategic planning, ecosystem development, and business leadership roles. Prior to joining Intel, Joe worked at Dell, Inc. leading the global workstation product line, the consumer, and small business.

James Reinders is an engineer at Intel focused on enabling parallel programming in a heterogeneous world. He has helped create 10 technical books related to parallel programming. His latest book is about SYCL and is a free download. He has helped to make key contributions to two of the world's fastest computers and many other supercomputers and software developer tools.
