ACENET Parallel Computing School

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on May 21, 2019 in Announcements

Parallel computing performs multiple actions at the same time, allowing you to to execute code efficiently and save time. It can therefore scale and solve larger problems than sequential programming.

Now in its third year, join ACENET for this four-day summer school covering topics essential to parallel programming. These include:

  • General parallel computing - performance measurement and factors affecting performance, I/O and data movement, schedulers and “embarrassingly parallel” jobs
  • OpenMP, shared memory and threads
  • Message Passing Interface (MPI)

The school is designed for participants familiar with the Linux command line and who have some level of programming experience. Completion of the ACENET Basics Series, or equivalent experience, is strongly recommended. The mornings will consist of lectures, with the afternoons following a lab format, where participants will be given exercises, or can bring specific problems to instructors related to their research.

Program details can be viewed at this link.

Seating is limited so register early!
