ACENET's annual summer school in Parallel Computing begins in May

The school is open to researchers and students across all disciplines, as well as industry. This is a great course for people with some programming experience, but whom have not taken advantage of the benefits of speed achieved with distributed computing.

May 17, 19, and 31; June 2, 7, 9, 14, 16, 21, 23, 28 and 30

2:00-4:00pm Atlantic

Topics include general parallel computing, Dask, Machine Learning, OpenMP programming, GPU accelerator programming, and Message Passing Interface (MPI) covered over 12 online sessions. Each two-hour session will include a lecture and learning exercises. These will be oriented to those learners seeking a more advanced experience. There will be online office hours each week so participants can ask questions about the course content and exercises. The course is aimed at researchers and innovators, both academic and industrial. 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.    


All sessions are online.
