Objectives

This course will provide very good introduction to the PUMPS Summer School run jointly with NVIDIA - 26 - 30 June also  at Campus Nord, Barcelona. For further information visit the school website  as this school has attendee selection process.

The aim of this course is to provide students with knowledge and hands-on experience in developing applications software for processors with massively parallel computing resources. In general, we refer to a processor as massively parallel if it has the ability to complete more than 64 arithmetic operations per clock cycle. Many commercial offerings from NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel already offer such levels of concurrency. Effectively programming these processors will require in-depth knowledge about parallel programming principles, as well as the parallelism models, communication models, and resource limitations of these processors.

Requirements

Basics of C programming and concepts of parallel processing will help, but are not critical to follow the lectures.
