A novel performance analysis workshop series concept, developed at Durham University under the umbrella of the ExCALIBUR programme

From January 2021 until July 2021, a group of members of the POP consortium, DiRAC, theN8 CIR, Durham University’s Institute for Computational Cosmology and members of ComputerScience organised a series of seven workshops around performance analysis and optimisation.

This report was prepared summarising the workshops, making fresh observations that challenge the way academics tend to explain how the HPC world works.
