Parallel Programming with MPI - Training
|Date:||12.12.2012 9:00 - 14.12.2012 17:00|
|lecturers:|| Pekka Manninen (CSC) |
This course is a walk-through on the most important features of the de-facto standard approach to parallel programming: Message Passing Interface (MPI). This course is a combination of selected contents from the CSC/PATC courses Introduction to Parallel Programming with OpenMP and MPI and Advanced Parallel Programming.
The course consists of lectures and hands-on programming exercises, progressing on a relaxed pace and atmosphere.
After the course the participants will understand the MPI approach and should be able to parallelize serial programs with MPI and to modify and extend existing MPI codes.
No prior knowledge on parallel programming is required, but the participants have to have a working knowledge in Fortran and C programming languages.
