This event runs for two consecutive Saturdays, February 2nd and 9th, 2013
This is a short course on High Performance Computing (HPC) and High Throughput Computing (HTC) for scientists and engineers. The goal is to introduce the concepts of parallel computing to anyone whose research might benefit from parallel computation.
Many researchers have simple computational problems that require vast computational resources. This course is designed to jump-start these researchers, and also provide the parallel computing cornerstone for those with more complex programming needs.
Basic knowledge of computer programming or use of a computational tool used in your field. Students will learn how to run very simple programs in parallel on a grid or cluster. Students with more complex programming needs can, and are encouraged to pursue higher level computer programming courses after completing this introduction.
