XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenACC

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.

The workshop will be telecast beginning at 10:00 a.m. Central Time at Room 901 in Hardin Hall on East Campus.
