The course provides an introduction to parallel programming of supercomputers in technical and scientific environments. It focuses on the use of the Message Passing Interface (MPI), the most common programming model for distributed memory systems. It also covers OpenMP, which is used on shared memory systems.

The first four days of the course consist of lectures and short exercises. On the fifth day, much of the course content will be revisited and applied in the context of a larger example. For this purpose, starting from a simple but representative serial algorithm, a parallel version will be designed and implemented using the technologies learned.
