April 3-4, 2018

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to announce a two-day MPI workshop, to be held April 3-4, 2018.

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.

You may attend this event at any of the following sites:

  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • University of Delaware
  • West Virginia State University
  • University of Iowa
  • Ohio Supercomputer Center
  • Clarkson University
  • Stanford University
  • University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez
