XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
November 6, 2018
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on November 6, 2018.

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
  • Stanford University
  • Tufts University
  • Youngstown State University
  • Georgia Institue of Technology
  • University of California, Los Angeles
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Utah
  • University of Notre Dame
  • Georgia State University
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
  • Arizona State University
  • Texas Tech University
  • University of Texas at El Paso
  • University of Houston – Clear Lake
  • George Mason University
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville – National Institute for Computational Sciences
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
