EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM

Presenter(s):Tim Mattson, Clay Breshears, Mark Bull


With multi-core processors in everything from laptops to high-end servers, programmers must become comfortable with parallel programming. In most cases, cores are connected through shared memory; i.e. every core sees the same address space. OpenMP is the de facto standard for writing parallel applications for shared memory computers. It is available on just about every shared memory system as an integral part of the compiler, and is a great way to get started with parallel programming. In this tutorial, we will provide an overview of shared memory computers and OpenMP for people new to parallel computing. The content will include quizzes, short paper-and-pencil exercises, and other methods to create an active learning experience.
