XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenACC

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 April 1, 2014.

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 Blue Waters which is deployed at NCSA.

Register for the Pittsburgh site here.


The tentative agenda, subject to change, is below. It is designed to be
time-zone friendly.
