Dear HPC users,

There are still free places available for the upcoming GASPI Workshop @ LRZ. The registration deadline has been extended until Friday, 4 May 2018. Don't miss this chance!

  *   The GASPI programming model represents a powerful and highly scalable alternative to the one-sided communication of MPI in accessing the global memory address space (across many compute nodes).
  *   LRZ invited two experts from Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM as teachers.
  *   The workshop will cover both lectures and hands-on sessions.


As scalable and flexible computing on massively parallel HPC systems based on distributed memory architectures becomes more important, we are happy to host the course on

"Introduction to GASPI - Scalability in HPC"

in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM).

The course will take place on

Tuesday, May 8 and Wednesday, May 9, 2018, 9:00 - 16:30

at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities at Garching b. München, Germany.


GASPI (Global Address Space Programming Interface) offers a small, yet powerful API for scalable HPC applications following a single program multiple data (SPMD) approach. Single-sided communication primitives are supplemented by a light weight synchronization mechanism (notifications).


The course aims to provide an introduction to the GASPI API as well as to discuss typical use cases.
On the Linux cluster CoolMUC-2 the attendees will have the chance to apply the acquired skills.
