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:

  • CUDA programming model and language extension
  • Partitioning and granularity of parallel applications
  • Debugging and profiling of CUDA kernels
  • Impact of memory access patterns on performance
  • Multi-GPU programming using MPI
  • OpenCL programming model and API

Prerequisites: Knowledge in C

A minimum of 5 participants is required. Registration is necessary until 5 March 2012.
