The focus is on the programming models MPI and OpenMP. Hands-on sessions (in C, Fortran and Python) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP (in C and Fortran). This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. This course is organized by the University of Mainz in cooperation with HLRS.


Unix, C or Fortran

Content levels:

The preliminary course outline can be found here (PDF download).


Each participant will get a pdf of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the EPCC Training and Education Centre, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.
If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards MPI-3.1 (Hardcover, 7 Euro).
An older version of this course with most of the material (including the audio information) can also be viewed in the ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
