Intel® Academic Program for oneAPI

Intel connects with universities and students worldwide to evolve Intel® oneAPI Toolkits and the Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) language through interaction with the academic community. Intel® oneAPI Toolkits enable developers of all types to build, test, and deploy performance-driven, data-centric applications across CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs.

oneAPI Centers of Excellence

A Center of Excellence (CoE) is a university that partners with Intel to drive adoption of oneAPI through strategic code ports, product feedback, curriculum development, instructor certification, and paper publication.

Meet CoE Stockholm University / KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Erik Lindahl is focused on porting the GROMACS molecular dynamics package over to oneAPI and sharing his experience with the broader ecosystem.

Press Release

Learn More About GROMACs

“It’s exceptionally important to us that GROMACS is able to make efficient use of all the fastest supercomputers in the world, and the upcoming exascale machines powered by Intel hardware will make it possible to simulate processes we could not even imagine a few years ago, such as how a virus binds to proteins on a cell and infects it.”
— Erik Lindahl, biophysics professor, GROMACS development team, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Academic Projects

Efficiency and Productivity for Decision-Making on Low-Power CPU and GPU SoCs

The University of Málaga is researching how to solve the large-scale Markov Decision Process efficiently on low-power computing platforms using 12 different parallel code implementations. The project highlights the use of oneAPI libraries and languages, such as Intel® oneAPI Threading Building Blocks and DPC++.

Computational Drug Repurposing for Treating COVID-19

Kansas State University is using generative machine learning strategies (such as generative adversarial networks and variational autoencoders) to evaluate new drug molecules to fight the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The project uses tools and libraries available in oneAPI toolkits such as Intel® Distribution for Python*, Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library(Beta), and scikit-learn*.

NAMD: Scalable Molecular Dynamics

NAnoscale Molecular Dynamics (NAMD) is a widely used molecular dynamics simulation engine that is under development at the University of Chicago. NAMD launches multiple concurrent instances using a parallel runtime called Charm++ to maximize computational resources. The scope of this project is to port GPU kernels to DPC++ in order to leverage Intel® architecture.
