This technical seminar intends to provide a quick overview of the extensive and broad topic of Parallel Computing. It will cover the basics of parallel computing with a short introduction on parallel computing, followed by a classification and then a presentation of concepts associated with parallel computing. Distributed and shared memory architectures together with programming models are then explored. State-of-the-Art tecnologies (many-core processors, HPC, etc.) will be presented. These topics will be followed by several applications of parallelization including Medical Image Processing, Simulation, etc.
