Description

ARCHER, the UK's national supercomputing service, offers training in software development and high-performance computing to scientists and researchers across the UK. As part of our training service we will be running a 2 day ‘Advanced MPI’ training session.

Details

This course is aimed at programmers seeking to deepen their understanding of MPI and explore some of its more recent and advanced features. We cover topics including communicator management, non-blocking and neighbourhood collectives, MPI-IO, single-sided MPI and the new MPI memory model. We also look at performance aspects such as which MPI routines to use for scalability, overlapping communication and calculation and MPI internal implementation issues.

 

This course is free to all academics.

Intended learning outcomes

 

Pre-requisites

Attendees should be familiar with MPI programming in C, C++ or Fortran, e.g. have attended the ARCHER MPI course.
