Parallel Programming in Computational Engineering and Science
Monday, March 10 – Friday, March 14, 2014vin Aachen, Germany

This event will continue the tradition of previous annual week-long events that take place in Aachen every spring since 2001.

Throughout the week we will cover a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from serial  programming (Monday) to parallel programming using MPI (Tuesday) and OpenMP (Wednesday) in both Fortran and C/C++ as well as performance tuning.  Furthermore, we will introduce the participants to modern features of the OpenMP standard like vectorisation and programming for accelerators and for the Many Integrated Core (MIC) Architecture (Thursday) as well as GPGPU programming with OpenACC (Friday). Hands-on exercises for each topic will be provided, which should not discourage you from working on your own code.

The topics are presented in a modular way, so that you could pick specific ones and register for the particular days only in order to let you invest your time as efficiently as possible.

Attendees should be comfortable either with C/C++ or Fortran programming and interested in learning more about the technical details of application tuning and parallelization. The presentations will be given in English.

There is no seminar fee. All other costs (e.g. travel, hotel, and consumption) are at your own expenses.

Allocation is on a first come, first served basis, since the seminar room is of limited capacity. Please register separately for each session you would like to attend.

The registration deadline is March 3, 2014.

The event is kindly sponsored by the Bull company.
