OpenMP is the industry standard for shared-memory programming, which enables serial programs to be parallelised using compiler directives.
This two-day course is aimed at programmers seeking to deepen their understanding of OpenMP and explore some of its more recent and advanced features.

Reaching the Exascale is rightly posed as a combination of challenges related to (i) energy efficiency, (ii) heterogeneity and resiliency of computation, storage and communication, and (iii) the scale of the parallelism involved. Many discussions about Exascale focus on the first two challenges. This is understandable – building an Exascale system with today’s most energy efficient technology would still require around 480 MWatts.

The second and final day of the Beatbox workshop that Adrian Jackson described yesterday consisted of a tutorial where some of the participants were walked through running Beatbox scripts and using Beatbox in general.
The whole set-up was done using a bootable 8Gb Linux USB key which contained the key components, including part of the Beatbox distribution. That worked quite well and would be worth considering for this kind of course. The attendees got to take the USB keys away so they could continue evaluating Beatbox after the event, which is kind of neat.
