Workshop on using OpenACC to tap the power of accelerators
April 1, 2014
ITaP Research Computing (RCAC) will host a workshop in April for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty and staff looking to gain skills in working with OpenACC, an application programing interface designed for easier portability among different operating systems and processors and for taking advantage of accelerators to speed research computing jobs.
The workshop is intended to give researchers programming in C, C++ and Fortran a hands-on introduction to OpenACC programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenACC, which is designed for portability across operating systems, host processors and a wide range of accelerators, such as the Intel Xeon Phis on Purdue’s new Conte cluster supercomputer.
There is no cost to register. The National Science Foundation and ITaP are sponsoring the event. Participants register with the National Science Foundation Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), in which Purdue is a partner. A free XSEDE account can be created on the XSEDE user portal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
