VSC Training Course: Parallelization with MPI


On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. This 3 days course teaches parallel programming with MPI starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI).

This course is organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC), TU Wien in cooperation with the Research Area Scientific Computing of the University of Innsbruck and in cooperation with the HLRS. It is based on the HLRS MPI course. (Content Level: 70% for beginners, 30% advanced)
