[ONLINE] Advanced MPI @ IT4Innovations
Start: Tuesday, 19 October 2021 @ 06:45
End: Thursday, 21 October 2021 @ 11:00Description:
Message Passing Interface (MPI) is a dominant programming model on clusters and distributed memory architectures. This course is focused on users with some experience with MPI that want to deepen their knowledge. The course briefly recapitulates basic concepts and describes them in more detail. Then, more advanced concepts will be described (e.g., one-sided communication, parallel file I/O). Attendees will be able to immediately test and understand all these constructs in hands-on sessions.
This course was originally developed by Rolf Rabenseifner (HLRS). The content level of the course is 40% for beginners, 40% for intermediate, and 20% for advanced users.

Purpose of the course (benefits for the attendees)
After the course, attendees should know the majority of MPI functions and should be aware of their appropriate use in order to write highly scalable applications.
About the tutor(s)
Ondřej Meca holds a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic. He is currently a member of the Infrastructure Research Lab at IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center. His research interests include verification of parallel algorithms, development of pre/post-processing algorithms for large-scale engineering problems, and development of highly-scalable linear solvers.
Claudia Blaas-Schenner is an active member of the MPI Forum, i.e., the standardization body for MPI, and acts as a chapter committee chair for MPI Terms and Conventions. Currently, she is affiliated at the VSC Research Center of TU Wien (Austria) where she is involved in teaching and responsible for developing a training and education program in HPC. She holds a Ph.D. in Technical Physics from TU Wien, has a strong backgroud in computational materials science, and more than 20 years of experience in applied HPC.
