OFI Libfabric, APIs for MPI & CCL

August 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am UTC+0

Presenter Name: Rajalaxmi Angadi, Juee Himalbhai Desai, and Peinan Zhang (Intel)

Abstract: With increase in AI application and optimizations in HPC/AI, there are multiple middleware libraries using libfabric. This tutorial will go through libfabric overview, it will explain the software stack hierarchy. There will be examples programs with point to point and collectives coming from middleware library. There will be demonstration running simple programs on CPU/GPU.
