OpenMP is a parallel programming interface for shared-memory architectures and is available on the IBM Regatta, the Blade Center, the SGI Altix and Calhoun. This workshop will help users to use OpenMP programming more productively for high-performance computing by addressing the different aspects of OpenMP, such as parallel and worksharing constructs, data scope attribute clauses, and synchronization constructs. In addition, the new features in the OpenMP II standard will be covered. A hands-on practice will follow the lecture. Examples will enable the users to insert OpenMP directives for different parallel tasks and data scope attribute clauses. Users are also encouraged to bring in their serial application codes. MSI’s user support staff will help you parallelize the code with OpenMP.
