Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP (for beginners)


The focus is on shared memory parallelization with OpenMP, the key concept on hyper-threading, dual-core, multi-core, shared memory, and ccNUMA platforms. This course teaches shared memory OpenMP parallelization. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the directives and other interfaces of OpenMP. Tools for performance tuning and debugging are presented. Course language is ENGLISH. This course is the second part (OpenMP for beginners) of a 5-day course program and may be booked together with the other parts PAR-MPI (MPI for beginners) 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.
