 Supercomputing Techniques: Parallel Processing on CRAY MPP Systems

The PSC will offer a workshop to students and researchers
associated with Pennsylvania academic institutions on

                      January 27-29, 1999
 -------------------------------------------------------------------
              REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  December 28, 1998
 -------------------------------------------------------------------

 PURPOSE:

 The purpose of this three day workshop is to introduce
 participants to parallel processing on the CRAY T3E and to explore
 more advanced topics, including message passing, performance monitoring
and
 optimization techniques.

 AGENDA:

 The first two days of this workshop have been designed to introduce
 participants to the CRAY T3E environment, compiling, debugging,
 job submission, and parallel programming concepts. 

 On the third day, more advanced topics will be covered,
 including parallel programming techniques (message passing,
 shared memory libraries), code performance and optimization strategies.

 To ensure quality training, our workshops
 incorporate both lectures and extensive hands-on lab sessions.
 Programming exercises are carefully designed to reinforce concepts and
 techniques taught in class. Our instructors have strong scientific and
 technical backgrounds and are available for individual consultation
 during lab sessions.

 In addition to the lab exercises, lab time will also be available for
 participants to optimize their own code with the help and
 supervision of our instructors.  Participants are encouraged to bring
 their own code, but not required.

 ==> A working knowledge of FORTRAN or C and UNIX is required.
 ==> Parallel computing experience is not necessary.

 REGISTRATION:

Registration fees are waived to students, professors or researchers
associated with academic institutions in the state of Pennsylvania.
