EuroCC@Greece announces the HPC Workshop “Large Scale Scientific Computations”, by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), on July 8-11, 2024, at 10:00-16:00 PM (EET).

The workshop aims to introduce participants to large-scale calculations using parallel programming via training with hands-on examples. Moreover, special emphasis will be given to code parallelization, capable of utilizing clusters.


Target audience: postgraduate students and PhD candidates dealing with scientific calculations requiring processing speed and significant memory space

Workshop Location: on-site at NTUA School of Chemical Engineering (PC-Lab)

Participation cost: Free of charge

Language: Greek

The main topics of the Workshop are:


  • the SPMD (Single Program Multiple Data) parallel programming model and how it is implemented using the communication protocol MPI (Message Passing Interface),
  • the operation and architecture of GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit) as well as their use for large-scale computing through the parallel computing platform CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) and
  • parallel programming with OpenMP which enables serial programs to be parallelized using compiler directives.



  • Familiarity with Linux
  • Basics/principles of programming (C or FORTRAN is preferred).


Registration Deadline, June 23rd. Apply here.
