XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
March 30, 2017
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on March 30, 2017.
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 Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.
You may attend at any of the following sites:
- Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
- University of Colorado Boulder
- Tufts University
- National Center for Supercomputing Applications
- Howard University
- Georgia State University
- University of Arizona
- University of Houston-Clear Lake
- Purdue University
- Ohio Supercomputer Center
- Pennsylvania State University
- Youngstown State University
- California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
- Old Dominion University
- University of Nebraska-Lincoln
- Iowa State University
- University of Iowa
