Webinar: PDI – Introduction to the Portable data interface

Maison de la Simulation and the European Center of Excellence EoCoE organize a series of webinars on software technologies used in numerical physics and computational science. Webinars are online seminars accessible via the service GoToWebinar. They are opened to everybody and totally free.

Next session will be held March 6, 2020 at 10AM. It will focus on the PDI library and will be presented by Julien Bigot from Maison de la Simulation. The presentation will be in English.

Julien Bigot, tenured computer science researcher at CEA, will present the PDI data interface, a declarative API to decouple application codes from the Input / Output strategy to use. He will present its plugin system, which supports the selection of the best-suited existing IO library through a configuration file in each part of the code depending on the hardware available, the IO pattern, the problem size, etc.

This webinar will demonstrate the advantage of this approach in term of software engineering and performance through the example of the Gysela5D code.
