September 3-4, 2019
XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to announce a two-day MPI workshop, to be held September 3-4, 2019.

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.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.

You may attend this event at any of the following sites:

  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • New York University
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • George Mason University
  • Tufts University
  • Purdue University
  • Stanford University
  • University of Houston – Clear Lake
  • Tennessee Tech University
  • University of Delaware
  • Texas Tech University
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville – National Institute for Computational Sciences
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
  • University of Iowa
  • University of Houston
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • Yale University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
