SnuHPL: High Performance LINPACK for Heterogeneous GPUs
Jinpyo Kim, Hyungdal Kwon, Jintaek Kang, Jihwan Park, Seungwook Lee, Jaejin Lee,
ICS '22: Proceedings of the 36th ACM International Conference on Supercomputing
Presentation (30 min)
ACM Digital Library

SnuHPL is an optimized HPL for clusters of modern heterogeneous GPUs. It generates the best HPL data distribution for a given cluster configuration by considering computing power, memory capacity, and network performance altogether. With SnuHPL, Samsung Electronic's SSC-21 supercomputer is ranked #11 in November 2021 TOP 500 List and #2 in Green 500 List.

SnuQS is a full-state quantum circuit simulation framework. It exploits storage devices, such as HDDs and NVMe SSDs, to enlarge the available main memory capacity at a small cost. SnuQS and the proposed I/O subsystem together achieves 300× cost-effectiveness over the DDR4 DRAM main-memory-only system

CyCNN: A Rotation Invariant CNN using Polar Mapping and Cylindrical Convolution Layers
Jinpyo Kim, Wookeun Jung, Hyungmo Kim, Jaejin Lee,
arXiv preprint, 2020

CyCNN is a CNN model which exploits polar mapping of input images to convert rotation to translation. To deal with the cylindrical property of the polar coordinates, CyCNN uses cylindrical convolutional (CyConv) layers. A CyConv layer exploits the cylindrically sliding windows (CSW) mechanism that vertically extends the input-image receptive fields of boundary units in a convolutional layer.
