The Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology at Rice University annually host basic (introduction to parallel programming) and advanced training summer institutes for high-performance computing. The Summer Institutes consist of in-class instructions by leading experts covering (topics vary by session) MPI, OpenMP, Pthreads, OpenCL, CUDA, and OpenACC, parallel I/O as well as performance analysis and tuning of parallel programs using open-source tools including Rice’s own HPCToolkit and Argonne National Lab’s Jumpshot. Each topic will be supported by hands-on exercises performed on Rice’s high performance systems (including x86 cluster with NVIDIA Fermi GPGPUs, POWER7 cluster and BlueGene/P).

New for 2013:

  • HPC Basics (3-day introduction to parallel programing)
  • HPC Advanced (5day covering advanced topics in HPC)
  • Both session includes discussion of parallel i/o (basics and advanced)
