Introduction to Parallel Computing Workshop: 10 May 2022

The Division of Information Technology (DIT) at the University of Maryland is pleased to announce the following workshop for users of our High Performance Computing (HPC) resources.

There are only a limited number of seats available. Registration will remain open until 9 May 2022 or until all seats are filled. We expect the workshop to fill up before the registration deadline. If the workshop is successful, we are hoping to repeat this workshop regularly.

This afternoon workshop is targeted at users of the Deepthought2 and/or Juggernaut clusters who are interested in applying or developing multithreaded or multi-process applications. This course will briefly cover:

Directives to control the behavior of multi-threaded & multi-process programs (environment variables, compiler directives, etc) as well as code layout for parallelism in C, C++, and Fortran programs will be discussed and worked-out examples presented.


Basic knowledge of Linux/Unix and the use of our HPC clusters is assumed; we suggest to attend the workshop "Introduction to Unix", and ideally "Introduction to Compiling Software on HPC", before taking this course.

System Requirements

Desktop computers (running Windows 10) are provided in the meeting room. If you want to use your own laptop, please have a ssh client (e.g. PuTTy on Windows systems) and an up-to-date browser installed (on Windows systems preferably Firefox).

Miscellaneous Details

While the registration deadline is 9 May 2022, we are currently limiting this workshop to 25 participants on a first-come, first-served basis, and registration will close once the workshop is full. A limited number of participants will allow for more detailed discussions of questions.

NOTE: DIT reserves the right to cancel the workshop for any reason with little notice.

If you have questions or need more information about the workshop, please feel free to contact us.
