More Science, Less Programming

Accelerated computing is fueling some of the most exciting scientific discoveries today. For scientists and researchers seeking faster application performance, OpenACC is a directive-based programming model designed to provide a simple yet powerful approach to accelerators without significant programming effort. OpenACC also allows the same code to run on multicore CPUs and GPUs.

Join HPC industry’s OpenACC experts for a free online course. This course is comprised of four instructor-led classes that include interactive lectures, hands-on exercises, and office hours with the instructors. You’ll learn everything you need to start accelerating your code with OpenACC on GPUs and x86 CPUs. The course will cover introduction on how to parallelize, profile and optimize your code, as well as manage data movements and utilize multiple GPUs.

While this course does not assume any previous experience with OpenACC directives or GPU programming in general, programming experience with C or Fortran is desirable.

Classes start at 9am PT on Thursdays, office hours – 9AM PT on Tuesdays. All sessions will be recorded for later viewing.

10/1 Class #1 – Introduction to OpenACC on x86 CPU and GPU (1 hour including Q&A)
10/6 Office Hours for Class #1 (1 hour of Q&A)
10/15 Class #2 – Profiling and Parallelizing with the OpenACC Toolkit (1 hour including Q&A)
10/20 Office Hours for Class #2 (1 hour of Q&A)
10/29 Class #3 – Expressing Data Locality and Optimizations with OpenACC (1 hour including Q&A)
11/3 Office Hours for Class #3 (1 hour of Q&A)
11/12 Class #4 – Advanced OpenACC Techniques: Interoperability, MPI, and Pipelining (1 hour including Q&A)
11/24 Office Hours for Class #4 (1 hour of Q&A)

Please send your questions to openacc@nvidia.com before the Office Hours sessions, so the instructors can prepare helpful answers. You might even get a faster response!

The hands-on lab exercises for each class will be available at nvidia.qwiklab.com for free during the course.
