Content Parallel Programming with MPI, OpenMP, PETSc, and Tools (70% for beginners, 30% advanced)
Abstract The focus is on programming models MPI, OpenMP, and PETSc. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP. The last day is dedicated to tools. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. It is organized by ZIH in collaboration with HLRS.

Social Events Am ersten Abend planen wir zuerst eine kleine Stadtführung durch die Dresdner Altstadt. Im Anschluss gibt es ein gemeinsames Abendessen im Augustinern an der Frauenkirche.

Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Sie daran teilnehmen möchten.
See ZIH -> travel-info. The next bus station is "Technische Universität, Dresden" (4 min on foot, ehemals "Fritz-Foerster-Platz, Dresden").
Close to the ZIH (15 min on foot) you find the guest house "Gästehaus Am Weberplatz" of the Dresden University of Technology, early reservation is recommended. The next bus station is "Zellescher Weg, Dresden" (map).
Touristic hints:
I recommend to arrive at Dresden early, e.g., Sunday or Saturday morning.
The Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) in Dresden is the historical museum collection of the former treasury of the Wettin princes of the Renaissance to Classicism and the largest collection of treasures in Europe. I recommend to buy the ticket for the "Historisches Grünes Gewölbe" in advance and to reserve enough time for staying in the exhibition. You must not come late, because it is a time-ticket. The "Neues Grünes Gewölbe" is a second part of the exibition on the second floor (separate normal ticket).
You should not miss these two exhibitions and the visit of the Semper Opera (see above).
For further highlights, e.g., see this online tourist guide.

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.
