Petascale systems like Blue Waters and Titan will come online this year with both multicore CPUs and many-core GPUs. These systems will provide unprecedented capabilities to conduct computational experiments of historic significance. This one-week course will serve as a quick start for researchers who want to begin to use heterogeneous parallel computing systems ranging from laptops and Exascale clusters. It also provides a strong foundation for students to take full-semester courses in parallel programming interfaces and techniques.
