Learning outcomes

This course aims at providing theoretical and practical knowledge about programming and analysis of advanced computational architectures, with emphasis on multiprocessor and GPU platforms. At the end of the course the student will have to demonstrate the ability to apply the knowledge necessary to: identify techniques for parallel programming, also in a research context, through analysis of application efficiency and by considering both functional and non-functional design constraints (correctness, performance, energy consumption). This knowledge will allow the student to be able to analyze performance and to perform code profiling, by identifying critical zone and the corresponding optimizations by considering the architectural characteristics of the platform. At the end of the course the student will be able to compare parallel patterns and to select the best one by considering the use case; by defining the structure of the optimized code, demonstrate the ability to identify the proper architectural choices, by considering the target application and platform contexts. During the definition of the optimized code structure, the student will have the ability to continue the study autonomously in the field of the parallel programming languages and of the Software development for parallel embedded platforms.

Program

Theory module (32 h):
-) Intro to parallelism and parallel architectures.
-) Programming parallel architectures.
-) Models of parallel programming.
-) Measurement and analysis of performance, Amdhal’s low and metrics for performance analysis.
-) Pipeline: basic and advanced concepts.
-) Instruction-level parallelism (ILP).
-) Memory hierarchy: basic and advanced concepts.
-) Advanced optimization techniques of cache performance.
-) Thread-level parallelism (TLP).
-) General purpose Graphic Processing Unit (GP-GPU).
-) Intro to non-functional contraints: power consumption and energy efficiency.

Lab module (24 h):
-) Parallel compilers for multicore architectures (OpenMP).
-) Paralle compilers for cluster architectures (MPI).
-) GP-GPU programming: CUDA.

Examination Methods

To pass the exam, the student has to demonstrate:
- he/she has understood the principles related to the parallel programming
- he/she is able to describe the concepts in a clear and exhaustive way without digressions
- he/she is able to apply the acquired knowledge to solve application scenarios described by means of exercises, questions and projects.

The exam consists of a written test, which contains questions with multiple answers, questions with open answers, and exercises related both the theoretical and lab modules. The student can elaborate a project assigned by the teacher for a bonus (up to +5 points).

Tutorato per gli studenti

I docenti dei singoli Corsi di Studio erogano un servizio di tutorato volto a orientare e assistere gli studenti del triennio, in particolare le matricole, per renderli partecipi dell’intero processo formativo, con l’obiettivo di prevenire la dispersione e il ritardo negli studi, oltre che promuovere una proficua partecipazione attiva alla vita universitaria in tutte le sue forme.

TUTORATO PER GLI STUDENTI DELL’AREA DI SCIENZE E INGEGNERIA
Tutorato finalizzato a offrire loro un’attività di orientamento che possa essere di supporto per gli aspetti organizzativi e amministrativi della vita universitaria.
Le tutor attualemente di riferimento sono:
  • Dott.ssa Luana Uda, luana.uda@univr.it
  • Dott.ssa Roberta RIgaglia, roberta.rigaglia@univr.it

Tirocini e stage

Le attività di stage sono finalizzate a far acquisire allo studente una conoscenza diretta in settori di particolare attività per l’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro e per l’acquisizione di abilità specifiche di interesse professionale.
Le attività di stage sono svolte sotto la diretta responsabilità di un singolo docente presso studi professionali, enti della pubblica amministrazione, aziende accreditate dall’Ateneo veronese.
I crediti maturati in seguito ad attività di stage saranno attribuiti secondo quanto disposto nel dettaglio dal “Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari” vigente.

Tutte le informazioni in merito agli stage sono reperibili al link https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.

Further services

I servizi e le attività di orientamento sono pensati per fornire alle future matricole gli strumenti e le informazioni che consentano loro di compiere una scelta consapevole del corso di studi universitario.
