March 24, 2015 by Katie Antypas

This Wednesday, March 25th, from 10AM-2PM pacific at NERSC’s Oakland Facility (415 20th St, Oakland, CA 94612), NERSC will be hosting an Intel led OpenMP threading training session. This is a great chance to learn the methodology for starting with a serial or MPI only code, identifying regions of interest for OpenMP and effectively creating a hybrid MPI-OpenMP application.

If you would like to attend either in person or remotely, please register at:

The agenda for the training is:

Part 1

* Introduction

* Review of hardware & parallel programming models for NERSC NESAP

* Principles of High Performance Parallel Programming (HPPP)

* EMGeo case study: basic

* EMGeo case study: intermediate

Part 2

* Learn MIC programming model

* Multi-level parallelism: Nested OpenMP

Part 3

* PARSEC case study

* EMGeo case study: advanced

* Conclusions
