Introduction to Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF)

Overview

(Room changed to Rühle Saal, Nobelstr. 19, 70569 Stuttgart, modified on April 4, 2017)

Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) is a new model for parallel programming. Unified Parallel C (UPC) and Co-array Fortran (CAF) are PGAS extensions to C and Fortran.UPC and CAF are language extensions to C and Fortran. Parallelism is part of the language. PGAS languages allow any processor to directly address memory/data on any other processors. Parallelism can be expressed more easily compared to library based approaches as MPI. This course gives an introduction to this novel approach of expressing parallelism. Hands-on sessions (in UPC and/or CAF) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of PGAS languages. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.

PRACE PATC and bwHPC-C5

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.

HLRS is also member of the Baden-Württemberg initiative bwHPC-C5.
This course is also provided within the framework of the bwHPC-C5 user Support
