VSC Training Courses: Parallel programming with MPI / OpenMP and parallel I/O

Want to boost your computer simulations by writing parallel code that runs efficiently on modern compute clusters? Join in for our courses in English and learn about parallel programming and how to do I/O efficiently on a supercomputer.

This autumn we offer three courses to help you boost your computer simulations.

On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. What is more, multicore (shared memory) CPUs, which are most easily and efficiently programmed using OpenMP, can be found basically anywhere. In addition, computer simulations face an ever-growing need for scalability and are pushing the limitations on size, allowing properties to be simulated more accurately. Therefore, increasingly large data sets, be it reading input data or writing results, have to be processed.

All our courses start from a beginner’s level and lots of hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic concepts of parallel programming.

The courses are organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) at TU Wien, and for MPI and OpenMP this is done in cooperation with the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS).

All information about the courses as well as a detailed agenda and the registration link can be found in the links below from the website of the Continuing Education Center (CEC) of TU Wien and from the course program of the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC):
