Supercomputing Techniques: Parallel Processing on CRAY MPP Systems
                     July 28-31, 1997
-------------------------------------------------------------------
             REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  June 30, 1997

PURPOSE:

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

AGENDA:

The first two days of this workshop have been designed to introduce 
participants to PSC's supercomputing environment, compiling, debugging,
job submission, and parallel programming concepts. Participants will 
learn to write parallel code using message passing calls.

The third and fourth days are designed to cover more advanced topics,
including advanced parallel programming techniques, how to monitor 
code performance and optimization strategies. There will also be 
presentations on scientific applications which have been parallelized.

To ensure that participants receive 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 code, but not required. 

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

REGISTRATION FEES:

Admission to this training workshop is free to the United States
academic community. 

Interested corporate and government applicants, as well as applicants
from academic institutions outside the United States should contact
