Distributed Computing Seminar

In this seminar we will investigate programming paradigms for distributed computing beyond MPI.


Roland Leißa, Sebastian Hack, Richard Membarth, Philipp Slusallek

General Information

When Wednesdays at 16:15 (sine tempore) (AKA 16:00 (cum tempore))
Where Room 401, E1 3

The first meeting will be on 11 April 2018.

Modus Operandi

Participants will be divided into six groups (two persons per group). Each group will implement a distributed conjugate gradient solver which requires a distributed sparse matrix-vector multiplication. Each group will use a different programming technique. Moreover, each participant will read one scientific paper that will be presented in a talk.


If you want to take this seminar, simply write an email to Roland Leißa. This email should include:

  1. full name
  2. semester
  3. major
  4. matriculation number
Note that you still have to register for the Seminar in the LSF to get a certificate for the seminar.


Please register in our GitLab and email Roland Leißa your GitLab username and desired group name. You will then get access to a GitLab project matching your group's name. You can use this project for coding. Additionally, you will obtain read access to the paper list in our Wiki.
