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.

The School of Social Work and the International Rescue Committee have come together to offer cultural competence and humility training for mental health practitioners and students, and the campus community is invited to attend.

The training will take place 1-4 p.m. Sept. 7 at the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 5015 E. 29th St. N., and is available at no additional charge, but registration is required as space is limited.

The presenter at the training, Samuel Paunetto, is a social worker born and raised in Puerto Rico. He’s been active in decolonization and anti-racism practice for almost 30 years, working with marginalized communities in Puerto Rico and in the mainland. He is the health and wellness coordinator for the International Rescue Committee in Wichita, where he works to improve health access and outcomes among refugee families.

The training is built off the understanding that when the community of mental health practitioners acquires better cultural competencies, and a deeper understanding of systemic and social determinants, clients are better served, and health outcomes improve.

This training is offered at no cost through the Refugee Health Promotion Grant. The training follows and exceeds the core goals established by the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in healthcare.
