Course ITER-S (Stuttgart)
Location Großer Seminarraum, HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart), Universität Stuttgart, Allmandring 30, D-70569 Stuttgart
Date 2013, Monday Mar. 11, 8:30 - Friday Mar. 15, 15:30 (modified on Dec. 3, 2012: course moved from Mar. 4-8 to Mar. 11-15)
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. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of iterative solvers, the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. It is organized by HLRS, IAG, Uni. Kassel, and SFB/TRR30.

Social Events Am ersten Abend planen wir zuerst eine Stadtführung durch die Stuttgarter Innenstadt. Im Anschluss gibt es ein gemeinsames Abendessen in Stuttgarts erster Lokalbrauerei, dem "Calwer Eck" (schwäbische Küche). Herr Prof. Meister wird voraussichtlich ebenfalls daran teilnehmen.
Am Mittwoch bieten wir eine Besichtigung unserer 3-D Visualisierungs-CAVE an.
Am Donnerstag sei ein Besuch der Neuen Staatsgalerie empfohlen (Di/Do bis 20:00 geöffnet). Die Sammlung moderner Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts ist wirklich sehenswert.
Spaß macht auch ein abendlicher Besuch des Stuttgarter Fernsehturms. Er ist sowohl der erste Stahlbetonturm, als auch der erste Fernsehturm der Welt.
Die Social Events sind auf Selbstkostenbasis, also nicht in den Kursgebüren enthalten.
Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Sie daran teilnehmen möchten.

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.
NO-SHOW: Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops (because it is to expensive to produce unused copies of the slides for them).
Limit maximum of 42 participants in Stuttgart and Kassel, 35 in Dresden and Aachen, 34 in Garching, 26 in Jülich, 20 an der TUHH (according to the seats in the rooms).
Handouts Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the EPCC Training and Education Centre, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.
If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards MPI-3.0 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP 3.1 (about 8 Euro).
Most material of the course (including the audio information) can also be viewed in the ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
