Iowa High Performance Computing Summer School 2009

Iowa High Performance Computing Summer School

Date: Thursday and Friday, August 6th-7th, 2009
Time: 8:30am to 5:00pm
Location: 2523 UCC Training Room


The first annual Iowa High Performance Computing (IHPC) Summer School is a pilot two-day summer school for University of Iowa graduate students aims to give students hands-on experience running parallel algorithms, both locally on a shared high performance computing cluster at the University of Iowa, and remotely on computers at a national supercomputing center. In addition to lectures and hands-on demonstrations, students will work together to complete a parallel programming homework assignment.

Members of the University of Iowa faculty will teach courses on:

  1. The Basics of Designing High Performance Computing Algorithms
  2. Parallelization using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) Libraries
  3. Optimization of Parallel Performance
  4. Management of a High Performance Computing Research Program

Competency in scientific computer programming in a version of either Fortran or C is a prerequisite for this school, but familiarity with parallel programming is not required.
