Upcoming PATC courses in autumn 2019

You are here

The registrations for the autumn PATC at BSC are already open. This time it brings us 3 courses: "Parallel Programming Workshop", "Earth Sciences Simulation Environments" and "HPC and natural hazards: modelling".

In this course you will understand the fundamental concepts supporting message-passing and shared memory programming models. The course covers the two widely used programming models: MPI for the distributed-memory environments, and OpenMP for the shared-memory architectures. The course also presents the main tools developed at BSC to get information and analyze the execution of parallel applications, Paraver and Extrae.


This training will cover the basics of a high performance computing (HPC) environment oriented towards earth science applications, specifically chemical weather modelling and climate modelling.


This course focuses on modelling two of the highest impact natural hazards, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. The objective is to give a succinct theoretical overview and then introduce students on the use of different HPC flagship codes included in the Center of Excellence for Exascale in Solid Earth (ChEESE).
