ACCESS HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC

Monday, November 7, 2022 11am-5.30pm EST

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present an OpenACC GPU programming workshop, sponsored by ACCESS. 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-2 computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

This will be an IN PERSON event hosted by various satellite sites, there WILL NOT be a direct to desktop option for this event.

Yale Center for Research Computing is an ACCESS satellite training site located at 160 St Ronan Street, New Haven, 06511.


To register for the event, please create ACCESS ID and complete the registration by Friday, November 4 at Noon Eastern time

Further details will be provided once your registration has been processed. Thank you for your patience.
