NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Crash Course in Supercomputing, June 14, 2022

Date and Time: 12:30 pm - 5 pm (Pacific Time), Tuesday, June 14, 2022. 

This training as part of the 2022 Berkeley Lab Computational Sciences Summer Student Program, is also open to NERSC, OLCF, and ALCF users.

In this course, students will learn to write parallel programs that can be run on a supercomputer. We begin by discussing the concepts of parallelization before introducing MPI and OpenMP, the two leading parallel programming libraries. Finally, the students will put together all the concepts from the class by programming, compiling, and running a parallel code on one of the NERSC supercomputers. Training accounts will be provided for students who have not yet set up a NERSC account.

This event will be presented online only using Zoom. Please see below for remote connection information.
