Tutorial Details: Parallel Programming Using OpenMP

Date: Thursday, September 15, 2011, 10:00 am - 04:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): David Porter, MSI, Shuxia Zhang, MSI

OpenMP is a parallel programming interface for shared-memory architectures and is available on all the core clusters. This one-day 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 we provide will enable you to insert OpenMP directives for different parallel tasks and data scope attribute clauses. You are also encouraged to bring in your serial application codes. The instructors will help you parallelize the code with OpenMP

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: Knowledge of FORTRAN or C programming language
