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.
David teaches on a wide range of EPCC's technical training courses, including MPI and OpenMP, and is overall course organiser for EPCC's MSc in High Performance Computing.
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, 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.
Attendees should be familiar with MPI programming in C, C++ or Fortran, e.g. have attended the ARCHER MPI course.
All attendees should bring their own wireless-enabled laptop set up with the required software. Practical exercises will be done using a guest account on ARCHER.
(May be subject to change)
All sessions will include hands-on practical exercises in addition to lectures material.
Day 1: 22nd July
Day 2: 23rd July
Slides and exercise material for this course will be available soon.
