Parallel Programming Workshop, MPI and OpenMP

Enterprises & SME Research & Science
Parallel Programming Workshop, MPI and OpenMP


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.

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.

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).


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.
