XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC

November 7, 2017

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on November 7, 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 Delaware
  • Kennesaw State University
  • George Mason University
  • Tufts University
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
  • Oklahoma State University
  • Georgia State University
  • University of Utah
  • University of Houston-Clear Lake
