Parallel Programming Workshop

The aim of this workshop is to give people who already have some programming experience an introduction into the basics of parallel programming. 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 HLRS, EPCC (parts of MPI-1), NIC and ZHR (VAMPIR). 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:

Course Sep. 23-27. Stuttgart, HLRS MPI and OpenMP for beginners and
advanced topics in parallel programming
