Course description:
The course is a mixture of lectures and labs. It introduces all levels of parallelism as well as common approaches for parallelization in order to achieve these goals:

  • Better utilization of the GPUs by enabling more scientists to use them
  • Better understanding of the efficiency in the GPU utilization by the application developers
  • A higher job throughput by enabling more resources and shortening job runtimes

In addition the course enables participants to:

  • Understand and avoid the common pitfalls of parallel computing
  • Learn CUDA and OpenACC
  • Understand the basic principles of data parallel computing
  • Tap into a lot of computing power, even on a laptop
  • Speed up their research

Virtual Summer School courses are delivered simultaneously at multiple locations across the country using high-definition videoconferencing technology. Please check below for available site locations.
