Parallel Programming Summer School at CSCS – 17-19 August 2011

CSCS will be hosting a three day summer school on parallel programming aimed at graduate students who are new to the world of high performance computing and who wish to learn the basic skills required to write, develop and maintain parallel applications in scientific computing.

17-19 August 2011 at CSCS in Manno

The school will cover topics such as the principles of parallel programming, distributed memory programming with MPI, shared memory programming using OpenMP, hybrid programming with MPI/OpenMP and performance tools for parallel applications, as well as some advanced topics. The purpose of the summer school is to teach programming skills and therefore a large proportion of the course will be dedicated to practical exercises.

Potential participants are advised to register and make arrangements for accommodation as soon as possible due to the fact that hotels in the Lugano area are very busy during August.

We look forward to seeing you in Lugano!
