XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenACC
5th November 2013
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on November 5. 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 Blue Waters at NCSA. Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites. Please note that the hands-on accounts will be limited to 150 students, available across all sites and awarded by order of Registration. Please click on the individual site for a link to the registration page. This workshop is NOT available as a webcast. There is no registration fee for this workshop. Please address any questions to Tom Maiden at email@example.com The agenda is below and it is designed a one day to be time-zone friendly.
