Abstract

The High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) intends to support academia and research in the field of parallel programming. The basis for this are leading edge technology hardware, supportive development software and the support of users in writting parallel programms or migrating from serial codes to parallel ones. During the last year HLRS has introduced its new platforms (Cray T3E-512LC and NEC-SX4) in two workshops to the user community. In this upcoming workshop the focus is now on parallel programming strategies. The intention is to give an overview of the developments in the field and provide the user with the basic knowledge for porgramming parallel supercomputers.
