Programming Models @ BSC

Boosting parallel computing research since 1989

Parallel Programming Workshop

- Written by Xavier Teruel

  • Venue: Barcelona, SPAIN
  • Event date: October 26-28th, 2016
  • Speakers: Xavier Teruel & Xavier Martorell


The objectives of this course are to understand the fundamental concepts supporting message-passing and shared memory programming models. The course covers the two widely used programming models: MPI for the distributed-memory environments, and OpenMP for the shared-memory architectures. It also presents the main tools developed at BSC to get information and analyze the execution of parallel applications, Paraver and Extrae. Moreover it sets the basic foundations related with task decomposition and parallelization inhibitors, using a tool to analyze potential parallelism and dependences, Tareador.
