EuroCC@Greece announced the HPC Workshop “Large Scale Scientific Computations”, by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), which took place on July 11-14, 2023, at 10:00-16:00 PM (EET).
The workshop aimed to introduce participants to large-scale calculations using parallel programming via training with hands-on examples. Moreover, special emphasis was given to code parallelization, capable of utilizing clusters.
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
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
- the 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).
