VSC Training Course: Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP


The focus of this 2 days course is on shared memory parallelization with OpenMP for dual-core, multi-core, shared memory, and ccNUMA platforms. This course teaches OpenMP starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the OpenMP directives, environment variables, and library routines. Race-condition debugging tools are also presented.

This course is organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC), TU Wien in cooperation with HLRS. It is based on the HLRS OpenMP course.

Note, an additional course on Distributed memory parallelization with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) takes place on the previous three days at the same location, registration for both courses can be done on the same registration form.
