OpenACC GPU Programming Workshop - Penn State University

Host Site:


Host site URL:

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, the National Institute for Computational Sciences and Georgia Tech will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on October 16 and 17. Based on demand, we are will be presenting this at 10 satellite sites. The hands-on platform will be Keeneland, the NSF’s premier GPU resource. The agenda is below and it is designed as two short days to be time-zone friendly. 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 NSF large scale GPU computing platform presently being deployed at the National Institute for Computational Sciences.

There are no more hands-on accounts available for this site.

You are registering to attend this event at the Pennsylvania State University as AUDIT ONLY.
