The aim of this workshop is to give people an insight into the programming of parallel machines by MPI. The workshop is split into two parts. During the first day an introduction to MPI will be given. Hands on sessions will allow users to immediately test and understand what the basic constructs of MPI are meant to do. The second day will be dedicated to more sophisticated techniques of programming in MPI.
