The focus is on the programming models MPI and OpenMP. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. This course is organized by the GWDG at the University of Göttingen in cooperation with HLRS. (Content Level: 70% for beginners, 30% advanced)

The preliminary schedule and more information can be found on the HLRS course site


Unix / C or Fortran




Dr. Rolf Rabenseifner (Stuttgart, member of the MPI-2/3/4 forum)


Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the EPCC Training and Education Centre, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre. If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards MPI-3.1 (Hardcover, 17 Euro).
An older version of this course with most of the material (including the audio information) can also be viewed in the ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
