AGENDA: The first two days of this workshop have been designed to introduce participants to PSC's supercomputing environment, compiling, debugging, job submission, and parallel programming concepts. Participants will learn to write parallel code using message passing calls. The third and fourth days are designed to cover more advanced topics, including advanced parallel programming techniques, how to monitor code performance and optimization strategies. There will also be presentations on scientific applications which have been parallelized. To ensure that participants receive quality training, our workshops incorporate both lectures and extensive hands-on lab sessions. Programming exercises are carefully designed to reinforce concepts and techniques taught in class. Our instructors have strong scientific and technical backgrounds and are available for individual consultation during lab sessions. In addition to the lab exercises, lab time will also be available for participants to optimize their own code with the help and supervision of our instructors. Participants are encouraged to bring their code, but not required. ==> A working knowledge of FORTRAN or C and UNIX are required. ==> Parallel computing experience is not necessary. REGISTRATION FEES: Admission to this training workshop is free to the United States academic community. Interested corporate and government applicants, as well as applicants from academic institutions outside the United States should contact Kathi Burgard at (412)268-5131 for information on attendance fees. HOUSING AND TRAVEL: Housing and travel are the responsibility of participants, but we will provide information on local hotels at your request. Group rates for local hotels are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
