Trainingskurs "Advanced Parallel Programming with MPI and OpenMP"

(Kurs-Nr. 782020 im Trainingsprogramm 2020 des Forschungszentrums)

30.11.2020 09:00 Uhr

Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Ausbildungraum 1, Geb. 16.3, R. 213a


Supercomputernutzer, die ihre parallelen Anwendungen mit MPI oder OpenMP optimieren wollen und bereits Erfahrungen mit MPI und OpenMP haben

The focus is on advanced programming with MPI and OpenMP. The course addresses participants who have already some experience with C/C++ or Fortran and MPI and OpenMP, the most popular programming models in high performance computing (HPC).

The course will teach newest methods in MPI-3.0/3.1 and OpenMP-4.5, which were developed for the efficient use of current HPC hardware. Topics with MPI are the group and communicator concept, process topologies, derived data types, the new MPI-3.0 Fortran language binding, one-sided communication and the new MPI-3.0 shared memory programming model within MPI. Topics with OpenMP are the OpenMP-4.0 extensions, as the vectorization directives, thread affinity and OpenMP places. (The GPU programming with OpenMP-4.0 directives is not part of this course.) The course also contains performance and best practice considerations, e.g., with hybrid MPI+OpenMP parallelisation. The course ends with a section presenting tools for parallel programming.

Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the taught constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. It is organized by JSC in collaboration with HLRS. (Content Level: 20% for beginners, 50% intermediate, 30% advanced).

Kenntnisse in Unix, den Programmiersprachen C, C++ oder Fortran, und Erfahrung mit den Prinzipien von MPI mindestens im Umfang des Einführungskurses MPI und OpenMP, z.B.point-to-point message passing, datatypes, nonblocking communication, collective communication; Erfahrungen mit OpenMP 3.0
