XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
December 6, 2016

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on December 6, 2016.

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
  • Youngstown State University
  • Case Western Reserve University
  • University of Houston – Clear Lake
  • Harvey Mudd College
  • Georgia State University
  • Purdue University
  • University of Notre Dame
  • University of Utah
  • University of Nebraska – Lincoln
  • Stanford University
  • Ohio Supercomputer Center
  • North Carolina A & T State University
  • University of Delaware
  • Old Dominion University
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
  • Tufts University
  • University of Puerto Rico – Mayaguez
