The focus is on advanced programming with MPI and OpenMP. The course addresses participants who have already some experience with C/C++ or Fortran and MPI and OpenMP, the most popular programming models in high performance computing (HPC).

The course will teach newest methods in MPI-3.0/3.1 and OpenMP-4.5, which were developed for the efficient use of current HPC hardware. Topics with MPI are the group and communicator concept, process topologies, derived data types, the new MPI-3.0 Fortran language binding, one-sided communication and the new MPI-3.0 shared memory programming model within MPI. Topics with OpenMP are the OpenMP-4.0 extensions, as the vectorization directives, thread affinity and OpenMP places. (The GPU programming with OpenMP-4.0 directives is not part of this course.) The course also contains performance and best practice considerations, e.g., with hybrid MPI+OpenMP parallelisation. The course ends with a section presenting tools for parallel programming.

Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the taught constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. It is organized by JSC in cooperation with HLRS. (Content Level: 20% for beginners, 50% intermediate, 30% advanced).

Lectures will be given by Dr. Rolf Rabenseifner (HLRS, member of MPI-2+3 Forum),
and JSC scientists for the tools session on the third day.

Registration deadline: Oct. 29, 2017.

The course language is English.
