High Performance Fortran (HPF)

Four-Day Workshop

October 18 - 21, 1994

At the Swiss Scientific Computing Center, CSCS-ETHZ, Manno (Ticino), Switzerland

Applied Parallel Research (APR), in cooperation with the Swiss Scientific Computing Center (CSCS-ETHZ), offers a four-day workshop on High Performance Fortran (HPF). This will be an intensive training session with hands-on experience using APR's HPF compilation system, xhpf. Attendees are encouraged to prepare their own application codes for parallelization over a distributed memory workstation cluster during the workshop.

This workshop will feature a programming tutorial on MPP systems and HPF, and offer an opportunity to gain experience parallelizing real Fortran applications using APR's newest parallelization tools. Ample time has been allocated to allow each attendee, working at their own pace and with the instructors and CSCS staff, to parallelize and evaluate real benchmark programs and their own application codes. CSCS will provide access to MPP systems on which to run parallelized codes.

The instructors will be John Levesque and Richard Friedman of Applied Parallel Research. The workshop languages will be English and Fortran.
