Event Details



 

 

A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services. 

 

ABOUT THIS SESSION:

This intensive full-day course introduces different parallel programming methods: OpenMP as a widespread method for a shared memory programming model and MPI as the standard for a distributed memory programming model. It is targeted at C and Fortran programmers. This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.

Course objectives:

  • Understand different parallel programming methods and models

  • Design parallel programs

  • HPC hardware available through Intersect & NCI  

  • OpenMP as a widespread shared memory programming model

  • MPI as the standard for a distributed memory programming model

 PLEASE NOTE:

 This module assumes knowledge of:

  • Writing batch jobs in Unix (or have completed the Introductory & Intermediate courses in Unix & HPC)

  • Are familiar with using HPC

  • Are experienced in writing code in either C or Fortran

  • Have experience of writing programs for HPC

 WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

High Performance Computing is a very powerful tool to use when facing computationally intensive tasks.  If you are waiting hours or days for your computer to crunch through your data, this course is for you!  It will enable you to use the HPC facilities available to the university through its support agencies such as Intersect and NCI.  If you’re using one or more of a very broad range of applications currently supported, this should allow you to use the application you are familiar with to process your data much more quickly.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course is targeted at C and Fortran programmers. It gives an introduction into different parallel programming methods. OpenMP as an wide-spread method for a shared memory programming model and MPI as the standard for a distributed memory programming model are discussed.

The course includes examples and exercises. Attendees can choose between C and Fortran for the exercises. All exercises will be done on our local HPC machine. Student accounts will be provided. Students must be fluent in C or Fortran and be familiar with a Linux environment.
