The aim of this workshop is to give people who already have
some programming experience an introduction into the basics of
The focus is on the programming models MPI and OpenMP,
domain decomposition, load balancing and parallel numerics.
Language support is given for Fortran, C and C++.
The course was developed by
EPCC (parts of MPI-1),
Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test and
understand what the basic constructs of MPI and OpenMP are meant to do.
Message Passing with MPI is the major programming model on
large distributed-memory systems in high-performance computing.
OpenMP is dedicated to shared memory systems.
The workshop in fall 2002 is given with following focus:
The course language is English, if required.
All slides and course materials are in English.
