University of Kentucky (UKY) is presenting an MPI workshop over the Access Grid. This MPI workshop consists of 4 three-hour sessions held each Thursday beginning October 3, 2002 through October 24, 2002.
This MPI workshop is sponsored by the Alliance Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS).
If interested in attending at UKY, please refer to these local arrangements. If planning to participate from another site, see the General Announcement for further information.
This workshop is on using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard to write parallel programs. MPI provides Standardization - on many levels, Portability - to existing and new systems, Performance - comparable to vendors' proprietary libraries, Richness - extensive functionality, many quality implementations. It covers a variety of processor-to-processor communication routines, collective operations performed by groups of processors, defining and using high-level processor connection topologies and user-specified derived data types for message creation.
UKY is located in Lexington, Kentucky, in the eastern time zone. The schedule is as follows:
Thursday, October 3, 2002 (noon to 3p Eastern)
Thursday, October 10, 2002 (noon to 3p Eastern)
- Message Passing Fundamentals
- MPI Program Structure
- MPI Messages and Datatypes
