XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI

September 4 and 5, 2013

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the Texas Advanced Computing Center are pleased to announce a two-day MPI workshop, to be held September 4 and 5, 2013.

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.

You may attend at any of the following sites. Register at https://portal.xsede.org/group/xup/course-calendar/-/training-user/class/148.

  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • Clemson University
  • Purdue University
  • University of Delaware
  • University of Houston – Clear Lake
  • University of Michigan

About Outreach and Training

Workshops incorporate both lectures and extensive hands-on sessions. Programming exercises are carefully designed to reinforce concepts and techniques taught in class.

Instructors have strong scientific and technical backgrounds and are available for individual consultation, including help with participants' own coding needs.

Biomedical Workshops

The education and outreach program of the Biomedical Applications Group includes workshops and online teaching tools, online courses, and workshop webcasts, among other approaches.
