Parallel Programming with OpenMP and MPI


Parallel Programming with OpenMP and MPI
A new edition on the “Parallel Programming with OpenMP and MPI” course will be held on November 2017. The course has been organized by the Scientific Computing Center of UAM and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS), and sponsored by the Chair UAM-Fujitsu.

It will take place in the Faculty of Sciences (November 2-8, 2017), and registration is mandatory even if it is free. More information can be found here. The deadline to register is October 16, 2017.

Given the practical nature of the course, attendees are expected to have experience on the use of OpenMP and MPI.

For those interested participants who do not meet this requirement, we offer the possibility to attend an introductory course to parallel programming (“Introduction to parallel programming with OpenMP and MPI“) that will take place between October 2 and 6, 2017 at the CCC-UAM (more information here).

Please, note that the deadline to register for this introductory course is September 21, 2017.

Parallel Programming with MPI and OpenMP


Parallel Programming with MPI and OpenMPThe objectives of this course are to understand and practice the fundamental concepts of Parallel Programming with Message Passing and Shared Memory. The  course covers the two widely used programming models: MPI for distributed environments, and OpenMP for shared-memory architectures. It also presents some tools providing support in the development of parallel applications. The Debugger, to find the causes for application errors; Paraver, to beable to analyze the  behaviour of the parallelism; and Tareador, to extract task parallelism from applications. The course is taught using formal lectures, combined with practical/programming sessions.

Training Course in Open Source Queue Management System - Slurm


The Cátedra UAM-Fujitsu in collaboration with the Center for Scientific Computing of the Autonomous University of Madrid (CCC-UAM) has organized a training course in Open Source Queue Management System (Slurm) used in High-Performance Computing (HPC).

The course is aimed at researchers who want to leverage the resources of the CCC-UAM as well as Linux system administrators who want to implement Slurm.

The course will be taught in Spanish and will cover the installation of Slurm starting from scratch, system commands, user management commands and MySQL support. The idea is that the course involves practical training, so it will be complemented by numerous real examples.

REGISTRATION: To register it is only necessary to send a message indicating name, phone, email and linkage to the Campus UAM-CSIC to administrador.ccc@uam.es address. Registration is free but places are limited.

Date: 23-29 September, 2015.
Location: Laboratory Simulations of Center for Scientific Computing, module C-08, first floor, Autonomous University of Madrid, 28049, Madrid, Spain.
Duration: 20 hours, daily from 9:30 to 13:30.
Cost: Free
