Iowa High Performance Computing (IHPC) Summer School

Event Date: 

Monday, May 20, 2013 - 8:30am to Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 5:30pm


Applications are invited for the fifth annual Iowa High Performance Computing (IHPC) Summer School, to be held at the University of Iowa. This three-day summer school, funded by the National Science Foundation and hosted by the University of Iowa, is intended to teach graduate students the fundamentals of high performance computing for modern research in all fields of study.

The intensive, three-day course consists of lectures on high performance computing and hands-on exercises, taught by the IHPC 2013 Faculty. This course will give students hands-on experience creating and running parallel algorithms, both locally on a shared high performance computing cluster at the University of Iowa, and remotely on resources at a national supercomputing center.

Summer School Topics:

IHPC 2013 Faculty will teach courses on:

  • The Basics of Designing High Performance Computing Algorithms
  • Parallelization using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) Library
  • Multi-threading using the OpenMP Library
  • GPU Computing and CUDA programming
  • Optimization of Parallel Performance
  • Management of a High Performance Computing Research Program
