Intel Software Tools Technical Webinar Series

These free technical webinars cover tips and techniques that will help sharpen your development skills to create faster, more reliable applications. Technical experts will cover topics ranging from vectorization, code migration, code optimization, using advanced threading techniques (e.g., OpenMP 4.0, Intel® Cilk™ Plus, Intel® TBB), and error checking. Bring programming questions to the live session for our technical experts to answer. A replay of each webinar will be available shortly after the live session so you can share with those unable to attend the live session.

Times indicated are Pacific time. PST: Standard (UTC/GMT -8 hours), PDT: Daylight Savings (UTC/GMT -7 hours)

3 Tuning Secrets for better OpenMP performance using Intel® VTune Amplifier XE

May 19 9:00 A.M. Pacific

Sumedh Naik



Parallelism delivers the capability High Performance Computing (HPC) requires. The parallelism runs across several layers: super scalar, vector instructions, threading and distributed memory with message passing. OpenMP* is a commonly used threading abstraction, especially in HPC. Many HPC applications are moving to a hybrid shared memory/distributed programming model where both OpenMP* and MPI* are used. This webinar focuses on the OpenMP parallel model, and particularly on profiling the performance of OpenMP-based applications. Intel supplies a powerful performance profiling tool, Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE, that is quite handy for finding performance bottlenecks in OpenMP codes. In this webinar, we will go through the steps necessary to profile OpenMP applications, and will describe how you can quickly identify performance issues with task granularity, workload imbalance and synchronization using Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE.

Vectorizing Fortran using OpenMP 4.x – filling the SIMD lanes

May 26 9:00 A.M. Pacific

Ron Green



The Intel® Fortran Composer XE adopted the OpenMP* 4.x Standard’s new SIMD clause and feature in 2014. The OpenMP SIMD directive is a portable and easy-to use feature, particularly for those already familiar with OpenMP. The SIMD feature allows Fortran programmer to more directly control vectorization and thereby extract maximum performance from modern Intel® Architecture Processors. Some existing knowledge of vectorization, memory alignment, and OpenMP is helpful but not necessary. Ronald W. Green from the Intel Fortran Support team at Intel will lead this discussion of Fortran OpenMP SIMD directives and use, vectorization, and optimizations that will get your development efforts powered.

The free ride of faster performance with increased clock speeds is long gone. Software must be both threaded and vectorized to fully utilize today’s and tomorrow’s hardware. But modernization is not without cost. This webinar will take a systematic approach to vectorization through detailed case studies. Through the use of Intel® Advisor XE 2016 we will show how several tough vectorization problems can best be resolved by the use of software tools.
