This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to Message Passing Interface (MPI) programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.
