 High Performance Computing using MPI

24 November 2005


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.

Intended audience

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


100 euro for RuG university staff, 250 euro for
external participants.

The number of participants is limited to 20.
