2:30pm-4:45pm HPC at Lehigh: Afternoon Sessions RBC 85

-- Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center Workshop --

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will provide an overview of parallel computing and present the most common methods of progamming these types of machines, in particular MPI and OpenMP. For the MATLAB user community, there will be a special emphasis on StarP and parallel MATLAB. Attendees will be able to put these skills to immediate use on local platforms, or on the large NSF-funded platforms whose availability will be described.

Introduction to Using Shared Memory Programming Tools at Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
8:30am-12pm, RBC 51

Prerequisite for morning technical session requires a basic, introductory knowledge MATLAB (or some other mathematical modeling product) and of either C or Fortran language programming in a Unix environment.
