3rd Annual LONI HPC Parallel Programming Workshop

Title Date Times Venue
3rd Annual LONI HPC Parallel Programming Workshop June 2 - 4 2014 800 AM - 500 PM 1034 LDMC

HPC@LSU will hold a Parallel Programming Workshop on June 2 - 4 in 1034 Louisiana Digital Media Center at LSU in Baton Rouge.

This workshop will first introduce users to the concepts of Parallel Programming, then cover how those concepts apply to solving problems frequently encountered in numerical studies such as matrix-matrix multiplication, using various parallel programming techniques such as MPI, OpenMP and OpenACC. This workshop will be hands-on oriented, so the attendants should have prior programming experience in C/C++ and/or Fortran.


Tentative Schedule subject to change All sessions below include a hands-on session.


There are limited travel funds available for attending the Symposium and Workshops. All participants traveling to Baton Rouge for attending the Symposium and Workshops will be considered for travel awards provided:

  • Register for the Symposium and Workshop,
  • To be considered for a travel award, please upload a one or two paragraph proposal (in pdf/doc format) describing why a travel award is beneficial to your research for attending the workshop and
  • submit an abstract for poster or oral presentation (if attending Symposium) by May 15th, 2014.

If you are attending both the LONI Programming and Nvidia GPU Workshops, you can upload one combined proposal. Make a note in the proposal that you are requesting travel support for both workshops.

Priority will be given first to participants who are presenting (poster or oral) at the Symposium and then to participants who are attending the workshops held preceeding and following the symposium.

Requesting Travel Award

Please upload an one or two paragraph proposal using the link below by Noon on May 15, 2014,
