Abstract

The objective of this training session is to propose a short introduction to both MPI and OpenMP.  The course is taught using formal lectures and practical/programming sessions. All examples in the course will be done in Fortran, the exercices can be done in Fortran or C.

Target participants

Engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to learn the fundamental concepts of parallel programming models MPI, OpenMP.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of Fortran or C is required.

Scientific contact : Iabelle d’Ast

Intended learning outcomes

Learn to parallelize applications in order to reduce compute time or solve larger problems using MPI/OpenMP programming models.

On completion of this course students should be able to :

  • parallelise a simple C/FORTRAN program (50 lines) with MPI library and/or OpenMP directives,
  • understand and use OpenMP directives ( worksharing , synchronisation) ,
  • understand and use MPI functions (point to point communications, collectives, communicators, topologies) .

Fee

  • Trainees/PhDs/PostDocs : 100 €
  • CERFACS shareholders/CNRS/INRAI : 300 €
  • Public : 600 €
