Parallel Programming Workshop

Abstract
The aim of these workshops is to give people who already have some programming experience an introduction into the numerics of linear solvers and the basics of parallel programming. The focus is on iterative solvers, the programming models MPI and OpenMP, domain decomposition, load balancing and parallel numerics. Language support is given for Fortran, C and C++.
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.
Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test linear solver programming and to understand what the basic constructs of MPI and OpenMP are meant to do.

Dates

The workshops in summer/fall 2004 are given with different focus and locations:

(Course A-D were presented in spring 2004)
Course A+: Aug. 04-06, Dresden, ZHR MPI and OpenMP (in German)
Course E: Sep. 13-17, Kassel, Math. Iterative Linear Solver and Parallelization
(in German)
Course F: Oct. 11-15, Stuttgart, HLRS MPI and OpenMP for beginners
and advanced topics in high performance computing

(in English if required)
Course G: Nov.29-Dec.1, Jülich, NIC 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 online-course / end of page


Language

The course language is German (except the course Oct. 11-15 at HLRS, which is in English if required).

Content Iterative Linear Solvers and Parallelization
Abstract The focus is on iterative and parallel solvers, the parallel programming models MPI and OpenMP, and the parallel middleware PETSc. Thereby, different modern Krylov Subspace Methods (CG, GMRES, BiCGSTAB ...) as well as highly efficient preconditioning techniques are presented in the context of real life applications.

Registration The course is absolutely full. There is an additional course Jan. 17-19, 2005, which is also nearly full. Registration for the course in Jan. 2005 must be done still via registration for this course 2004 G. You will be automatically moved to the course in Jan. 2005. Registration must be done via the online form. If you are not from the FZ Jülich, it would be preferable if you can register for the course 2005 A in Dresden (with same content).
Deadline for registration is Nov. 12, 2004

Registration
deadline
Deadline is 4 weeks before the beginning of each course, late registration after the deadline is possible, but not recommended, because printing of the handouts starts at this deadline.
Cancelation policy If you cannot come to the course, please send an email to the organizer as soon as possible. This would allow us to accept additional participants from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
