OpenACC Workshop

April 18-19, 2012

Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
300 S. Craig St., Pittsburgh, PA

PSC, together with NVIDIA and PGI, is pleased to announce a hands-on workshop on GPGPU programming using OpenACC, an open standard for compiler directives to make accelerators easier to program. Using OpenACC directives in standard C and Fortran, programmers insert compiler hints into their code to automatically execute compute-intensive regions of code on accelerators, simplifying code development and improving performance portability.

While GPGPU programming experience is not required, a working knowledge of C or Fortran is required. There will be ample time for hands-on experience, so participants are encouraged to bring their own codes. After two days, codes may experience significant acceleration with OpenACC.
