A two-day intensive workshop on HPC


Parallel and Distributed Computing along with HPC has become pervasive, from supercomputers and server farms containing multicore CPUs and GPUs. It is now necessary for every programmer - to understand how parallelism and distributed computing effects problem solving. Thereby a two-day intensive workshop was arranged for HPC users - in which users learnt from the basics to more advanced skills of parallel programming, familiarized themselves with the new HPC Cluster and got hands on experience in submitting jobs on the new HPC job submission portal.
