Parallel Programming Workshop

Abstract
The aim of these workshops is to give people who already have some programming experience an introduction into the basics of parallel programming. The focus is on programming models, MPI, OpenMP and HPF, domain decomposition, load balancing and parallel numerics. Language support is given for Fortran, C and C++. The course was developed by HLRS, EPCC (MPI-1), NIC and ZHR (VAMPIR). Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test and understand what the basic constructs of MPI, HPF and OpenMP are meant to do. Message Passing with MPI is the major programming model on large distributed-memory systems in high-performance computing. HPF is a programming model suitable for data-parallel problems. OpenMP is dedicated to shared memory systems.

The workshops in fall 2001 are given with different focus:

Course A: Sept. 17-21, Stuttgart, HLRS MPI and OpenMP for beginners and
advanced topics in parallel programming
(in German)
Course B: Oct. 15-19, Stuttgart, HLRS MPI and OpenMP for beginners and
advanced topics in parallel programming
(in English)
Course HPF: Oct. 12, Stuttgart, HLRS HPF for beginners (in German)
Further courses: see end of this page

The course language is German (except the course Oct. 15-19 at HLRS, which is in English). All slides and course materials are in English.
