XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC

March 5, 2019

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on March 5, 2019.

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
  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Iowa State University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • George Mason University
  • Tufts University
  • Purdue University
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Houston - Clear Lake
  • University of Delaware
  • Texas Tech University
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville - National Institute for Computational Sciences
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
  • Ohio Supercomputer Center
  • Howard University
  • University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez
