In today’s multicore world, one-socket single-core systems are almost extinct. Reasonable performance gains could be extracted from these new many-core systems by employing shared-memory parallel programming methods like OpenMP. This tutorial introduces shared-memory parallel programming using the OpenMP parallel application-programing interface. It includes a quick tutorial on writing parallel code by implementing OpenMP directives. Topics covered included the fork & join execution model, data scoping, work-sharing, reductions, synchronization, OpenMP functions, etc. Several examples of modifying serial code to run in parallel will be presented. Participants with basic programming experience are welcome. Upon completion of this course, users should be able to write parallel applications using the OpenMP directives.



Prerequisites: Participants are expected to have familiarity with a low-level programming language such as C/C++, or Fortran, and work comfortably in a UNIX/Linux environment.
