Trilinos Workshop 2013

Location: Warsaw University of Technology


Date: 25-27 September 2013


Content: Introduction to Serial and Parallel Programming with Trilinos Numerical Package


Course desription: The course is intended for students, PhD students scientists and all others who want to take the advantage of ease of implementation and develop efficient simulation tools and application programs making use of many highly-optimised numerical algorithms for handling vectors and matrices, solving linear and nonlinear systems of equations in a serial or parallel programming model. It is aimed at those who just want to learn from scratch and start using Trilinos numerical library, but also at those who already had the first, basic contact with Trilinos.

The course is a hands-on workshop with a maximum amount of exercises showing the following applications.
Detailed topics:
- Introduction to Trilinos packages and its organization,
- Basic information on C++ which will be needed during the course,
- Storing serial vectors and matrices and operations on them,
- Solving serial linear systems of equations,
- Defining a parallel map, parallel vectors and parallel matrices and operations on them,
- Building and solving linear systems of equations in parallel,
- Introduction to nonlinear problems,
- Additional information and exercises on other Trilinos packages.

The course fee includes drinks and snacks during the breaks, printing of the material and the evening sight-seeing of the city of Warsaw with a tour-guide on Wednesday or Thursday evening and will need to be paid not later than 2 weeks before the beginning of the course after sending the invoice.
The fee does not include accommodation nor lunches/dinners. The lunches will be offered every day at an additional price of about 6-8 Euro each.


Prerequisites: C programming language (Additionally, basic knowledge of C++ will help a bit but is not necessary)


By train:
To the Warszawa Centralna train station (good connections from Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest)
By plane: To the Warsaw Chopin Airport which is located 8.0 km from the city centre (very good connections with most of the European cities and some American and Asian cities)
City transport: Buses, trams, underground and local trains organised by ZTM (

The campus of the Warsaw University of Technology is located directly in the city centre with very good connections from most of the districts of the city. The exact travel directions will be given to the participants by e-mail after the registration.


Handouts: Printed materials (copy of the presentation slides) will be given to every of the participants
