Course overview

The purpose of the course is to learn when a code could benefit from task-based parallelism, and how to apply it. Some codes can be simplified by the use of tasks and some codes can benefit performance-wise from the use of tasks.

The course mainly focuses on the task-pragmas implemented in the newer incarnations of OpenMP, but other task-based runtime systems are briefly mentioned.

Participation is open to all existing and prospective users of HPC from Swedish institutions.
