XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI – September 1-2, 2020
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. Please do not ask to be added to the workshop after the registration period has ended.

Should you have any problems with that process, please contact and they will provide assistance.

Please address any general workshop questions to Tom Maiden at
