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.

About Outreach and Training

Workshops incorporate both lectures and extensive hands-on sessions. Programming exercises are carefully designed to reinforce concepts and techniques taught in class.

Instructors have strong scientific and technical backgrounds and are available for individual consultation, including help with participants' own coding needs.

Biomedical Workshops

The education and outreach program of the Biomedical Applications Group includes workshops and online teaching tools, online courses, and workshop webcasts, among other approaches.
