Dear HPC users of LRZ,

"Parallel Programming of High Performance Systems" is the annual course provided by LRZ and RRZE, giving students and scientists a solid introduction to

- Processor and HPC system architectures
- Code development and basic tools
- Scalar optimizations (generic and architecture-specific)
- Parallelization basics
- Parallel programming with OpenMP and MPI

There will also be an additional course with advanced topics, which covers

- Parallel performance tools for MPI and OpenMP
- Parallel I/O with MPI I/O
- I/O tuning and libraries

Hands-on sessions will enable participants to apply the concepts right away.

You can find the preliminary course agendas on the web:
