XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenACC
August 13 and 14, 2013
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, the National Institute for Computational Sciences and Georgia Tech will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on August 13 and 14.
OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. It will have a hands-on component using the NSF's premier GPU computing platform,Keeneland, deployed at the National Institute for Computational Sciences.
Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites. This workshop is NOT available via a webcast. Please note that the hands-on accounts will be limited to 100 students, available across all sites and awarded by order of registration.
You may attend at any of the following sites. Register at https://www.xsede.org/web/xup/course-calendar/-/training-user/class/141.
- Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
- Clemson University
- University of Connecticut
- Louisiana State University
