Intel Parallel Computing Center collaboration with Colfax

We're just kicking off a week's collaboration with Colfax, a US technology company that collaborates heavily with Intel on Xeon Phi optimisation and training for the Xeon Phi. 

Two of their application engineers, Vadim Karpusenko and Ryo Asai, have flown over to work with EPCC staff on exploring and optimising simulation codes on Xeon Phi. In the first instance we are focussing on CP2K, but hopefully as the week goes on we will get a chance to look at other codes too. 

We will report back on how it goes, hopefully detailing our successes in making the code go faster!
