XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
March 8, 2016
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on March 8, 2016.
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 Blue Waters which is deployed at NCSA.
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 200 students, available across all sites and awarded by order of registration.
You may attend at any of the following sites:
- Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
- University of Houston Clear-Lake
- University of South Carolina
- Stony Brook University
- Georgia State University
- University of Iowa
- North Carolina A&T State University
- Ohio Supercomputer Center
- University of Notre Dame
- University of Delaware
- King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
- National Center for Supercomputing Applications
