Training course "Introduction to GPU programming using OpenACC"

(Course no. 82/2015 in the training programme of Forschungszentrum Jülich)

begin
19 Oct 2015 09:00
end
20 Oct 2015 16:30
venue
Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Ausbildungsraum 2, building 16.3, room 211
Target audience:
Scientists who want to use GPU systems with OpenACC
Contents:

GPU-accelerated computing drives current scientific research. Writing fast numeric algorithms for GPUs offers high application performance by offloading compute-intensive portions of the code to the GPU. The course will cover basic aspects of GPU architectures and programming. Focus is on the usage of the directive-based OpenACC programming model which allows for portable application development. Examples of increasing complexity will be used to demonstrate optimization and tuning of scientific applications.

Topics covered will include:

  • Introduction to GPU/Parallel computing
  • Programming model OpenACC
  • Interoperability of OpenACC with GPU libraries like CuBLAS and CuFFT
  • Tools for debugging and profiling
  • Performance optimization
Prerequisites:
Some knowledge about Linux, e.g. make, command line editor, Linux shell, experience in C
Language:
This course is given in English.
