NSF OpenMP high-performance computing workshop at Purdue set for Jan. 9

January 9, 2018  11:00am – 5:00pm
Envision Center (STEW B001)

Purdue will host a free workshop focusing on OpenMP programming on Tuesday, Jan. 9, for faculty, staff and students looking to learn more about using OpenMP to leverage the power of cutting-edge computing resources, including Purdue’s community clusters.

The workshop will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Envision Center, Stewart Center, Room B001-D, which is located off the tunnel between the Stewart Center and the Purdue Memorial Union. There is no cost to register, but space is limited to 25 participants so those wishing to attend should register soon. Participants should bring their own laptop with a terminal client such as PuTTY installed.

The event is sponsored by ITaP and the National Science Foundation Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), as well as the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

Participants should register with XSEDE, in which Purdue is a partner. A free XSEDE account can be created on the XSEDE user portal at portal.xsede.org. Once you have an account, you can register through the XSEDE portal. More information about the workshop is available here.

The mini course will include a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming, and attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP. Participants should be able to write C or Fortran in a Linux environment and to use a UNIX text editor, such as vi or Emacs.

This workshop is part of a series of high-performance computing training sessions ITaP sponsors at Purdue through XSEDE, says Eric Adams, who coordinates training for ITaP Research Computing.

The workshop is delivered nationwide using high-definition video conferencing to allow students to interact in real time with course instructors from the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and to work in person with local colleagues and experts. At Purdue, staff from ITaP Research Computing will be on hand.
