U-M is hosting a telecast of an upcoming training workshop on MPI programming sponsored by XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

The two-day MPI workshop will be held March 4-5, 2015. The U-M telecast will be held at Room 1180 of the Duderstadt Center, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Registration is required can can be done at the XSEDE website.

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.
