Join the ACCESS HPC monthly workshop: ‘GPU programming using OpenACC’

Join the High Performance Computing (HPC) monthly workshop, “GPU programming using OpenACC,” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, June 29 in EE 264 John Bardo Center. This workshop — brought to Wichita State by the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and sponsored by Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) — will focus on accelerating coding skills and unleashing the power of GPU programming with OpenACC.

OpenACC is the industry-standard method for developing GPU-capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has accelerated the speed and efficiency of real applications with great success. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. Participants have the chance to use the Bridges-2 computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center for a hands-on learning experience.

The ACCESS program by the National Science Foundation leverages the accomplishments of the 11-year Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment project and extends the ecosystem to incorporate new research methods, thereby fostering greater inclusivity and democratization of participation.

The workshop is in-person and will be hosted by various satellite sites across the country, including at WSU. Interested applicants must first have an ACCESS ID to sign up for the workshop. Registering for the workshop can be done online through Eventbrite by noon Tuesday, June 27. View the tentative agenda for the workshop.
