ONLINE COURSE: VSC Training Course: Parallelization with MPI @ VSC Vienna

Overview

This course will be delivered as an ONLINE COURSE for remote participation because of the COVID-19 measures enforced by most European governments.

REGISTRATION is strictly NECESSARY since the details to access the online course will be provided to the registered and accepted attendees only.

Furthermore, accepted participants will be contacted about two weeks in advance and asked to provide some more data for the hands-on labs that will be needed for user account creation on the VSC clusters. At that time there will also be a short PRE-ASSIGNMENT that has to be completed before the course starts.

Description:

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 HLRS. It is based on the HLRS MPI course. (Content Level: 70% for beginners, 30% advanced)

An additional course on Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP takes place at the same location.
