NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

Crash Course in Supercomputing, June 22, 2023

June 22, 2023

Date and Time: 12:30 pm - 5 pm (Pacific Time), Thursday, June 22, 2023. 

This training as part of the 2023 Berkeley Lab Computational Sciences Summer Student Program, is also open to NERSC, OLCF, and ALCF users. This training is geared towards novice parallel programmers. 

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.
