PATC Course on Coarray Fortran and UPC

PATC (PRACE Advanced Training Centre)  is organising a PGAS training course on the 1st and 2nd October in Edinburgh, just ahead of PGAS 2013. These courses are free to attend for everybody.

The aim of the course is for attendees to gain an understanding of the PGAS execution model, an ability to parallelise regular array-based code using UPC and Fortran coarrays, and an understanding of the synchronisation requirements of PGAS models.
Pre-requisites for the course are the ability to program in C/C++ and basic Fortran.

More information and a link to register for this course, which is organised separately from the PGAS2013 conference, can be found on the PRACE Training website
