NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Crash Course in Supercomputing, June 11, 2021

Date and Time: 10 am - 12 pm and 1 pm - 3 pm (Pacific Time), Friday, June 11, 2021

This training as part of the 2021 Berkeley Lab Computational Sciences Summer Student Program, is also open to NERSC users. 

In this two-part 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.
