XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC

March 16, 2022

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present an OpenACC GPU programming workshop.

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-2 computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

Due to Covid-19, this workshop will delivered via zoom.
