  • Workshop will start at an introductory level and it is designed to help people get started with parallel computing (hence the use of OpenMP).


  • Introduction to parallel programming
  • An introduction to OpenMP
  • Creating threads
  • Basic synchronization
  • Parallel loops (introduction to worksharing)
  • The rest of worksharing and synchronization
  • Data environment
  • OpenMP tasks
  • The OpenMP memory model
  • A survey of parallel programming models

Hands on workshop:

Bring your own laptop with an OpenMP compiler

(anything from Apple with X-code or any Linux-laptop with a modern GNU compiler, Windows laptops with Microsoft Visual Studio, or any laptop/OS with an Intel Compiler. Windows plus cigwin and a modern GNU compiler works as well. Note that we will not have time to help you install your programming environment, so please do this on your own in advance.)
