XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI

November 5-6, 2014

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the Texas Advanced Computing Center are pleased to announce a two-day MPI workshop, to be held November 5-6, 2014.

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.

You may register for this event at any of the following sites (full site list will be available about one month prior to the event):

  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • Michigan State University
  • University of Tennessee-Knoxville
  • Stanford University
  • Purdue University
  • Ohio Supercomputer Center
  • University of Houston, Clear-Lake
  • King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
