      Maximum 30 attendees; registrants will be notified via email within 1 week of submission.

      Introduction to Parallel Computing 
      • Introduction and motivation to parallel computing, with a lab on TACC resources 
      • Edit and compile code, submit jobs to the queue 
      CUDA Programming: Basics in C and Fortran 
      This session is intended for intermediate-level C/C++ and Fortran programmers who are interested in making the first steps towards CUDA programming for GPUs. CUDA code accommodates architectural features of GPUs. 
      • Several key elements of the hardware and the software, i.e. 
      • How the execution of a loop matches the grid and block structure of the hardware 
      • How user-managed cache memory is leveraged for speed how data is transferred asynchronously from host to device 
      MPI: Beginner and Intermediate 
      • Basic concepts of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) library for large scale parallel programming 
      • Interactive combination of lectures and code walk-throughs 
      HPC Tools 
      • HPC tools specifically designed for complex user environments (Lmod, Sanity Tool) 
      • Tools for workflow management (ibrun, launcher, launcher-GPU, Pylauncher) 
      • Tools for job monitoring and profiling (Remora, TACC-Stat, core_usage, amask) 
      • Other tools per participant interest 
      MPI with Containers 
      • Methods for running containers on HPC systems including advanced tasks like utilizing GPUs for computation and MPI for parallel jobs 
      • Docker to perform multi-stage and multi-architecture builds
