Remote Workshop

XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI - May 4-5, 2021
XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present a two-day MPI workshop.

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

This workshop will be remote to desktop only due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  When the registration has filled, there will be no more students added due to our current limits.

You must register in the XSEDE portal by April 30. Register via the XSEDE Portal Course Calendar:
