HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC

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.  Hands-on exercises using the Bridges-2 computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center are included to give attendees practice with the concepts presented.
