The Train the Trainer Program is provided in conjunction with the regular course Parallel Programming Workshop (MPI, OpenMP and Advanced Topics). Whereas the regular course teaches parallel programming, this program is an education for future trainers in parallel programming.
Too few people can provide parallel programming courses on the level that is needed if scientists and PhD students want to learn how to parallelize a sequential application or to enhance parallel applications. Within Europe, currently only six PATC centres and several other national centres provide such courses on a European or national level. We would like to assist further trainers and centres to also provide such courses in the whole Europe or at least within their countries.

You are familiar with parallel programming with MPI and OpenMP on an advanced level and skilled in both programming languages C and Fortran (or Python for the MPI part).
Your goal: You want to provide MPI and OpenMP courses for other scientists and PhD students in your country, i.e., you would like to provide at least the first three days of the regular course as a training block-course to PhD students.
Background: (a) Your centre supports you to provide such PhD courses in a course room at your centre. The course room is equipped at least with one computer/laptop per two (or three) students and has access to an HPC resource that allows MPI and OpenMP programming in C and Fortran. To this purpose, a center may send two or three TtT participants together to this course. Additionally, you may have already participated as a regular participant in one of our other courses, so that you are already familiar with all the exercises. Or (b), you as a future trainer would like to co-operate with a centre with the necessary course infrastructure in your country.
What does this Train the Trainer Program provide?
The Train the Trainer Program includes the curriculum from Monday until Friday according the course agenda. The Train the Trainer Program starts on Monday with a short introductory meeting at 8:15 am. On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday we will have a short review/discussion meeting after the course. On Thursday evening we will have an additional meeting and dinner for all participants of this TtT program. On Friday, we will wrap up with a short review at the end (17:00-17:30).

This course provides scientific training in Computational Science for the future trainers.
Besides the content of the training itself, another important aspect of this event is the scientific exchange among the participants. We try to facilitate such communication by
For your safety, we will only allow fully vaccinated or fully recovered or COVID-19 negative tested participants on all days. You must wear a medical face mask or FFP2 mask everywhere on site. If a distance of 1.5 m cannot be guaranteed inside, e.g., if you are working in pairs in exercises, it must be an FFP2 mask. Details can be found on the registration page.
We strongly recommend to choose travel options and hotels with the possibility to cancel (even close to the event) because we might be forced to deliver the course as an online course.

Monday-Tuesday: This is an HLRS course with the following fees:
Wednesday-Friday: For participants of the above categories, this course is sponsored by the PRACE PATC program, i.e., there are no course fees if you register only for Wednesday-Friday.
For all other participants (Mo-Fri), this course is an HLRS course with the following fees:
