On-Site Seminars and Tech Talks by MCSR Consultants
MCSR consultants are available to give technical talks and workshops to interested departments, classes, or student organizations at Mississippi universities and high schools. If you would be interested in a hands-on seminar, or a lecture-style talk, please contact us. You may pick from a number of topics that we have presented on before, or suggest a related topic that you think might be more attractive to your organization.
In recent months, MCSR consultants have given several such talks and seminars. In October, we gave a hands-on workshop for the students and faculty of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Alcorn State University:
"Beginning MPI Workshop". In this two hour workshop, students were able to login to MCSR's sweetgum (SGI Origin 2800) supercomputer, add MPI library calls to two simple, sequential C programs, run the programs in parallel on sweetgum, and check to see how much speed-up they achieved on 2 and 4 CPUs.
We then traveled to the University of Southern Mississippi and
gave a talk there for students and faculty of the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathematics. The topic was "Introduction to Parallel Programming at MCSR".
The same month, MCSR consultants gave a seminar to students of Delta State's CIS 210 Course: "Computer Programming Fundamentals". The seminar was:
"Introduction to Unix, Part I".
In January, MCSR Consultants gave two technical talks. "Parallel Programming at MCSR" was presented to DSU's student Association of Information Technology Professionals. "The History of Codebreaking: the Pre-Computing Era" was presented to the University of Mississippi Department of Computer Science.
