Timothy Carr and Andrew Lewis attended a 3 day parallel architecture course at the Center for High Performance Computing in Mowbray. The course covered new chip designs as well as programming methdology for OpenMP and MPI. The course was run by Kunle Olukotun, a visiting Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University. Much of the course work was hands on programming, very challenging and thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks also to CHPC for their hospitality.
