Event Description:

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the Texas Advanced Computing Center are pleased to announce a two-day MPI workshop, to be held May 7 and 8, 2014.

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. The sites will be announced about one month prior to the workshop

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.
