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 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.

As supplement, we offer a 2-day Fortran Workshop: Fortran and Vectorization in Scientific Computing

The workshops in spring 2002 are given with different focus:

Course A: Feb.25 - Mar.1, Stuttgart, HLRS MPI and OpenMP for beginners and
advanced topics in parallel programming
(in German)
Course B: Mar. 18-19, Stuttgart, HLRS Fortran Workshop (in German)
Course C: Mar. 20-22, Dresden, ZHR MPI and OpenMP (in German)
Online course: the parallel programming workshop is also available as an online-course with all slides and full audio information.
Further courses: see end of this page

The course language is German. All slides and course materials are in English.

Travel-Info (see below)
Hotel Reservation to be done directly at the hotel or via the tourist-agency, see Travel-Info below.
Limit maximum 33 participants each course
Handouts Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides, and the MPI 1.1 standard, an extract of the MPI-2 standard, and the OpenMP standard. You can get additional copies from the course chair and editor Rolf Rabenseifner. The MPI-1 part is based on the MPI course developed by the EPCC Training and Education Centre, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.
