Tutorial Registration: Parallel Programming Using MPI

Date: Tuesday, July 23, 2013, 10:00 am - 04:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): David Porter, MSI, Shuxia Zhang, MSI, Andrew Gustafson, MSI

This one-day, hands-on workshop provides an introduction on how to write a parallel program using MPI and will help researchers write better and portable parallel codes for distributed-memory Linux clusters. The tutorial will focus on basic point-to-point communication and collective communications, which are the most commonly used MPI routines in high-performance scientific computation. In addition, the advantage of using MPI non-blocking communication will be introduced. Each session of the workshop will combine a lecture with hands-on practice. The lecture will introduce basic principles, and the hands-on portion will focus on the use of MPI principles via examples.

Session 1: Introduction to basic concepts of MPI, centering on point-to-point communication.

Session 2: MPI collective communications including broadcast, gather, scatter, and All-to-All.

Programming will be done in Fortran and C, so any background in these two languages will be helpful.

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: Programming knowledge of C, C++ or FORTRAN
