As part of the Supercomputing Resource for Molecular Biology
programme, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg is
offering training courses in
Parallel Programming and High Performance Computing
to European researchers in molecular biology.
Participants will receive instruction in writing message passing and
data parallel programs using PVM, MPI and Fortran90/HPF. General
tuning and performance optimization techniques, suitable for today's
high performance RISC microprocessors, will also be covered. All
topics are complemented by hands-on training sessions, using the
parallel supercomputer facilities at EMBL-Heidelberg.
This course is open to European Molecular Biologists at the advanced
post-graduate level with research interests in sequence analysis,
image processing, structural refinement, protein design and molecular
Visitors from EU and associated countries will have travel and
accomodation expenses funded by an EU HCM/ALSI grant. Visitors from
other EMBL member states will be supported by funds from EMBL.
The next course is scheduled for the week of 01 - 07 September 1996.
There is a limited number of openings. Applications should be
received no later than Monday 15 July 1996.
