Introduction to multithreading and OpenMP

This workshop gives an introduction to shared-memory parallel programming and optimization on modern multicore systems, focusing on OpenMP. This is the dominant shared-memory programming model in computational science. Parallelism, multicore architecture and the most important shared-memory programming models are discussed. These topics are then applied in the hands-on exercises.

Arne De Coninck obtained his PhD at BIG N2N: 'High performance computing for large-scale genomic prediction'

In the past decades genetics was studied intensively leading to the knowledge that DNA is the molecule behind genetic inheritance and starting from the new millennium next-generation sequencing methods made it possible to sample this DNA with an ever decreasing cost. Animal and plant breeders have always made use of genetic information to predict agronomic performance of new breeds.
