XSEDE Workshop: MPI

Date: Monday, May 6–Tuesday, May 7

Time: 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Location: 242 Ag Administration Building

This two-day 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.
