Learn how to use the Message Passing Interface (MPI), the standard framework for parallel computing in distributed-memory systems, to parallelize your scientific applications. You will learn the basic concepts of message passing, including domain decomposition, collective communications, and several MPI library functions. A hands-on exercise parallelizing a machine learning model application on an XSEDE supercomputing cluster will be used so participants can practice these concepts. Follow-up sessions will be offered to further help participants with the exercise.

You will learn:

  • The message-passing interface paradigm
  • Core components of an MPI message: body, envelope
  • MPI processes and communicators
  • Collective communications: broadcast messages and reductions

Pre-requisites:

  • Basic C/C++ or Fortran programming skills
  • Basic knowledge of parallel computing concepts
  • Familiarity with a remote Linux server text editor: vi, nano, or emacs

 Registration is required. Go to this form to register by April 11.
