VSC Training Course: Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP

June 8-9, 2017 – REGISTRATION OPEN


The focus of this 2 days course is on shared memory parallelization with OpenMP for dual-core, multi-core, shared memory, and ccNUMA platforms. This course teaches OpenMP starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the OpenMP directives, environment variables, and library routines. Race-condition debugging tools are also presented.

This course has been originally developed by Rolf Rabenseifner from the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and is organized in cooperation with HLRS.


Here is the preliminary course outline.
