Advanced HPC (Parallel Programming) Course Outline

Dates: 25 September 2013

Time: 09:30 - 15:30

Location: Intersect Boardroom, Level 12, 309 Kent Street, Sydney NSW 2000

Cost: Free to University Researchers and PhD students

Note: Students must be fluent in C or Fortran and be familiar with a Linux environment. You will need to bring your own lap-top

Why use High Performance Computing?

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 is this course for?

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.

Lunch will not be provided. Duration is about 6 hours including breaks.
