                 Parallel Processing Techniques Workshop

PSC will offer a workshop to students and researchers associated with
Pennsylvania academic institutions. The workshop is designed
for people who have an interest in applying high performance
computing to their teaching or research or who are simply
interested in knowing more about parallel computing.

	      Application deadline: November 29, 2000
Location: Mellon Institiute
Date: December 4-6, 2000


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

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.

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