Introduction to Parallel Programming and Cluster Computing
July 29 – Aug 4 2012, University of Oklahoma, Norman OK
NCSI’s Parallel and Cluster Computing workshop will focus on
teaching faculty how to move from traditional desktop computing to
modern high-performance hardware — and how to teach it.
Offerings range from end-user focused applications ready-designed
for HPC to the details of creating applications designed to run on
clusters, many-core machines, shared-memory machines, and graphics
The material is designed for undergraduate faculty from a variety
of disciplines who would like to add parallel computing to their
undergraduate teaching and research.
In addition, undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to
attend alongside a sponsoring faculty member.
The workshop is hands-on, with exercises in both computing and
The 2012 NCSI/XSEDE workshops for undergraduate faculty,
