XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
March 3, 2020
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present an OpenACC GPU programming workshop.

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. This is a live, in-person event.

You may attend at any of the following sites.

  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • University of Cincinnati
  • Stanford University
  • Tufts University
  • Purdue University
  • Arizona State University
  • University of Houston – Clear Lake
  • East Carolina University
  • New York University
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • University of California, Los Angeles
  • Northwestern University
  • University of South Carolina
  • University of Delaware
  • Ohio Supercomputer Center
  • Pomona College
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville – National Institute for Computational Sciences
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
