Distributed memory parallelization with the Message Passing Interface MPI (for beginners)


On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. The course gives an full introduction into MPI-1. Further aspects are domain decomposition, load balancing, and debugging. An MPI-2 overview and the MPI-2 one-sided communication is also taught. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI). Course language is ENGLISH. This course is the first part (MPI for beginners) of a 5-day course program and may be booked together with the other parts PAR-OMP (OpenMP) and PAR-ADV (advanced topics).

HLRS is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in Feb. 2012. The mandate for the PATCs is as follows:
"The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced, world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences." (see D3.2.3)
This course is a PATC course, see also the PRACE Training Portal and Events. For participants from public research institutions in PRACE countries, the course fee is sponsored through the PRACE PATC program.
