Tutorial: Introduction to High-Performance Computing with R
R users are often limited by available memory, cpu power or both. The
tutorial will cover a number of available options to enhance or
accelerate R processing. Compared to the UseR 2008 tutorial, we will focus
more on parallel computing (Rmpi, snow) and interfacing with compiled
code (Rcpp, inline) and less on 'large memory'. Profiling, scripting
and 'big memory' approaches with also be covered.
All code will be made available on a 'ready-to-run' live-cdrom for booting or virtual machine use.
