Europe/Berlin timezone

Date and Time

The course will be held online on September 4th, 5th and 6th from 9 am to 1 pm.



  • Basic understanding of C, C++, or Fortran
  • Compiling applications by invoking the compiler on the command line
  • Logging in to a remote machine via SSH and handle a Linux command line remotely


Learning Objectives

OpenMP is a standard for parallelizing shared memory C/C++ and Fortran applications. It is supported by major compilers and provides a simple, low-entry barrier for thread-based parallelization.

This course gives an introduction to the basic workings and constructs used for parallelizing applications with OpenMP, including

  • Basic OpenMP concepts
  • OpenMP directives and runtime functions
  • Parallel regions
  • Working with private and shared data
  • Parallelizing loops
  • Synchronization

Building on the basics, this course continues to introduce advanced topics for parallelizing applications with OpenMP, including

  • Thread affinity
  • Memory locality and programming for ccNUMA systems
  • Shared-memory parallelization with tasking
  • Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) programming
  • Accelerator programming via offloading

Attendees will be able to follow along the demos and conduct their own experiments via hands-on exercises on the NHR@FAU clusters.



All actual course attendees will receive a course certificate.



The course will be held in English.
