Topics will include:

  • Overview of HPC architectures
  • Performance measurement and analysis tools
  • Help from the compiler
  • Single-processor performance tuning
  • Parallel computing


To participate in the hands-on exercises, participants are required to bring their own laptops. OSC workshop accounts will be provided.
