XSEDE two-day MPI workshop on your desktop on September 14-15, 2021

September 14-15, 2021

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present a two-day MPI workshop.

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

This workshop will be remote to desktop only due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  When the registration has filled, there will be no more students added due to our current limits.

Register via the XSEDE Training Portal: https://portal.xsede.org/course-calendar/-/training-user/class/2498/session/4192
