Contents:

Many-core programming is a very dynamic research area. Many scientific applications have been ported to GPU architectures during the past four years. We will give an introduction to CUDA, OpenCL, and multi-GPU programming using examples of increasing complexity. After introducing the basics the focus will be on optimization and tuning of scientific applications. Topics covered will include:

  • Programming models: CUDA, OpenACC, OpenCL
  • Using libraries as interface for GPU programming (e.g. Thrust)
  • Partitioning and granularity of parallel applications
  • Debugging and profiling of kernels
  • Performance optimizations
  • Multi-GPU programming using MPI

Prerequisites: Knowledge in C

This course is a PATC course (PRACE Advanced Training Centres).
