Parallel algorithms - seminars

Description of seminars

The aim of seminars is to familiarize students with the design and implementation of parallel algorithms and to practice the theory from lectures. The tasks are proposed in a way that enables to test/debug/run them on conventional computers. For the purpose of computationally demanding experiments, we arranged the access to Metacentrum. In order to show new trends in parallel programming, the semestral work is focused on Xeon Phi coprocessor.

Attendance at seminars (2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11) is not compulsory, however, strongly recommended. Our goal is to improve students' knowledge of parallel algorithms, not just to record presence.
