The Supercomputing Resource for Molecular Biology (SRMB), located at
the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, is offering
training courses in

	 Parallel Programming and High Performance Computing

to European researchers in molecular biology.  The next course will
be held 8 - 14 June 1997.

The course is an intensive and comprehensive introduction to parallel
programming and high performance computing for European molecular
biologists.  Topics include:

     Heterogeneous distributed computing with PVM 

     Message passing programming with MPI 

     Data parallel programming with Fortran90/HPF 

     Methodologies for designing parallel algorithms 

     Performance modeling and scalability analysis 

     Optimization for modern microprocessors 

     Shared memory programming and parallelizing compilers 

     Case studies from parallel applications in molecular biology 

There is considerable emphasis on hands-on experience through
practical sessions.  In particular, participants will write and
execute their own parallel programs in PVM, MPI and Fortran90/HPF.

The course is open to European researchers at the advanced
post-graduate level who have research interests in molecular biology,
including sequence analysis, image processing, structure refinement,
protein design and molecular dynamics.  Participants from EU countries
will be supported by an EU HCM/ALSF grant.  Residents of other EMBL
member countries will be supported by funds from EMBL. Participants
receive travel, accommodation and a subsistence allowance during their
visit, as well as access to the computational facilities of the
