Subject: PARALLEL PROGRAMMING WORKSHOP Fall 2007, Call for Participation

Sehr geehrte Dame, sehr geehrter Herr,

Multi-core CPUs erobern den Markt. Hierzu haben wir nun am Mittwoch 
(10.10.2007) einen Schwerpunkttag mit dem Thema "Parallelisierung auf 
Shared Memory Systemen" gebildet.

Könnten Sie bitte diese Ankündigung an interessierte Kollegen
weitergeben, da mit dieser Mailingliste die Interessenten für
Kurse zur "Parallelen Programmierung" oft nicht direkt erreicht
werden können.
Dieser Kurs wird in den Semesterferien in Englisch gehalten.
Diesen und weitere Kurse in Stuttgart, Garching, und Jülich finden Sie

Mit freundlichen Gruessen
Rolf Rabenseifner

                      Call for Participation


Date         Location        Content  (for beginners/advanced)
------------ --------------- -------
Oct.   8+9   HLRS Stuttgart  Message Passing Interface (MPI)
                             for beginners
Oct.   10    HLRS Stuttgart  Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP
                             (for beginners)
Oct.  11+12  HLRS Stuttgart  Advanced topics in parallel programming

Registration and further information:

  (courses F-a, F-b, and F-c)

  Deadline for registration: Sep. 9, 2007

Monday + Tuesday:
  On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel pro-
  gramming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating
  programming model. The course gives an full introduction into MPI-1.
  Further aspects are domain decomposition, load balancing, and
  debugging.  An MPI-2 overview and the MPI-2 one-sided communication
  is also taught.  Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow
  users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of
  the Message Passing Interface (MPI).

  The focus is on shared memory parallelization with OpenMP, the key
  concept on hyper-threading, dual-core, multi-core, shared memory,
  and ccNUMA platforms.  This course teaches shared memory OpenMP
  parallelization.  Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow
  users to immediately test and understand the directives and other
  interfaces of OpenMP.  Tools for performance tuning and debugging
  are presented.

Thursday + Friday:
  Topics are MPI-2 parallel file I/O, hybrid mixed model MPI+OpenMP
  parallelization, OpenMP on clusters, parallelization of explicit
  and implicit solvers and of particle based applications, parallel
  numerics and libraries, and parallelization with PETSc.
  Hands-on sessions are included.

Lectures will be given by
Katharina Benkert, Rainer Keller, Bettina Krammer, Uwe Kuester, and
Dr. Rolf Rabenseifner (member of MPI-2 Forum).

The course language is English.
All slides and handouts are in English.
