Absolvents should acquire the abilities to understand and express the contents of the course.

On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. This 3 days course teaches parallel programming with MPI starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI).

This course has been originally developed by Rolf Rabenseifner from the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and is organized in cooperation with HLRS and the VSC.


Here is the preliminary course outline.


Claudia Blaas-Schenner and Irene Reichl (VSC Team, TU Wien)
