This course will be delivered as an ONLINE COURSE for remote participation due to the COVID-19 measures enforced by most European governments.
The course discusses more advanced topics in MPI programming, such as user defined datatypes, as well as parallel I/O using MPI I/O and HDF5. The course consists of lectures and hands-on exercises on parallel programming.
This course is part of CSC Autumn of HPC 2021, a set of five two day modules teaching essential skills in parallel programming for modern GPU-accelerated supercomputers and organised by CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd (Finland) under PRACE Training Centres activity.
After the course the participants know how to define custom data types and read and write files efficiently in parallel.
Prerequisites and content level
The participants are assumed to have working knowledge of Fortran and/or C/C++ programming languages and skills discussed in the course "Parallel programming with MPI".
