The HPC/V group of the computing centre (RC) will host an MPI programming course for staff and students of the university of Groningen and staff of external research institutes.
Anybody who is interested in distributed computing using the message passing programming paradigm.
Introduction in parallel computing (with focus on distributed computing), application programming using the MPI library, implementation and usage of libraries that are based upon MPI, clustercomputing, practical exercises.
Although MPI is a general purpose parallel programming library, some attention will be paid to the specifics of programming MPI on the IBM BlueGene/L supercomputer that was installed at the computing centre of the university of Groningen in april 2005. The course will be taught in English. All programming examples are in the C programming language, so the attendee must be able to read basic C programs. However, usage of Fortran for doing the practical exercises is possible.
Two days, 12 + 13 december (course in the morning, practical exercises in the afternoon).
The attendee must be able to write programs in C or Fortran, and must be able to read C programs. Experience with UNIX systems (e.g. linux) helps, but is not a necessity.
Zernikeborg, room ZB169, Nettelbosje 1, Groningen.
Teacher: Arnold Meijster
