VSC Training Courses at the TU Wien: Parallel programming with MPI / OpenMP and parallel I/O


This autumn the VSC offers 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. And nowadays you'll find multicore (shared memory) CPUs basically everywhere, which are most easily and efficiently programmed using OpenMP. In addition, computer simulations face an ever growing need for scalability pushing the limitations on size and properties that can be accurately simulated. Therefore, ever larger data sets have to be processed, be it reading input data or writing results.

All courses start from a beginners 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:
