Monday, May 12
Noon - 5:00 p.m.

Check-in / registration

Atrium
1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Technical Workshop
Case study review of the effects of parallelization making use of MPI and OpenMP in a multi-level parallel programming paradigm. Results will be shared indicating the multi-core efficacy of NASA's OVERFLOW code on an aerodynamic wing design problem. Three scale cases will be benchmarked on NCSA's T3 (dual-core) and on Abe (quad-core). In addition, participants will obtain introductory training in multi-core programming.

NCSA system engineer Galen Arnold will also provide participants with hands-on training in multi-core programming.
