Distributed Computing Seminar

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


Roland Leißa, Sebastian Hack, Richard Membarth, Philipp Slusallek, Simon Moll

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.
