This site contains the general information for the 2020 Parallel Computing School, put on by ACENET.
The ACENET Parallel Computing School seeks to educate researchers in those tools and techniques used in high-performance
computing and scientific computation. Topics will include general parallel computing, OpenMP, GPGPU, and Message Passing
The course is aimed at researchers, both academic and industrial.
The background expected is typically that of a graduate student,
although both advanced undergraduates and those who have finished (or never been to) graduate school may expect to benefit.
Participants attending the school must have familiarity with the Unix command line, and some level of programming experience.
Participating in the ACENET Basics Series would be a great foundation for the school.
You must have a Compute Canada account.
If you do not have a Compute Canada account, please contact us at least a week in advance
of the first session (that is, by May 26) so we can help you set up a free account.
You must have your own computer, and set up the software described below on it
in advance of the first session.
You must have internet service
of sufficient quality to participate in a Zoom videoconference.
We also recommend that you have a microphone and headphones.
You may also find a second monitor useful, if you can obtain one.
