In this add-on course to the LRZ parallel programming course special topics are treated in more depth, in particular processor-specific optimization, I/O and PGAS concepts. It is provided in collaboration of Erlangen Regional Computing Centre (RRZE) and LRZ within KONWIHR.

Each day is comprised of approximately 5 hours of lectures and 2 hours of hands-on sessions.
