Introduction to Parallel Programming with MPI (online)

online (None)



The link to the Zoom session will be communicated to registered participants a few days before the event
Georg Hager (Erlangen National High Performance Computing Center)

NHR@FAUThis course gives an introduction to the Message Passing Interface (MPI), the dominating distributed-memory programming paradigm in High Performance Computing. The following topics are covered:

  • Basic principles of distributed-memory computer architecture and the Message Passing Interface (MPI)
  • Blocking and non-blocking point-to-point communication
  • Blocking and non-blocking collective communication
  • Derived data types
  • Subcommunicators, intercommunicators
  • Performance issues

The lectures are accompanied by hands-on exercises.


Participation is free of charge for attendees from German universities, academic computing centers, and research institutions. Please only register for the course if you are really going to attend. No-shows will be blacklisted and excluded from future NHR@FAU events.


All actual course attendees will receive a course certificate.


  • Familiarity with one of the standard HPC programming languages (C, C++, or Fortran)
  • Ability to handle the Linux command line via a remote connection (editing, compiling)
