VSC Training Course: Parallelization with MPI, November 22-24, 2016


    Note: an additional course on Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP takes place on the previous day, registration for both courses can be done on the same registration form.

    On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. In this 3 days course parallel programming with MPI is taught starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI).

    This course has been originally developed by Rolf Rabenseifner from the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and is organized in cooperation with HLRS. It is a retake of the MPI course in May 2016 in Vienna. (Content Level: 70% for beginners, 30% advanced)
