- Karl Wilkinson
This workshop has been postponed, the new date will be announced ASAP. Apologies for the inconvenience, Karl
Dave Norton from the Portland Group International (PGI) will be running a one day introductory workshop on the CUDA Fortran and OpenACC models for developing GPU accelerated code. Two models that provide a straightforward solution for porting code to GPUs.
CUDA Fortran is the Fortran counterpart to CUDA C whilst OpenACC uses a pragma based approach. Acceleration of scientific codes using these models has been reported to result in acceleration of up to a factor of 120x in exceptional cases. Examples can be found on the PGI newsletter: http://www.pgroup.com/resources/articles.htm#pginsider
This will be a hands on workshop utilizing the GPU accelerated nodes on Iridis3. Whilst the details of the course are not yet confirmed the following material will be covered:
Programming with CUDA Fortran
Programming with OpenACC (Approximately 2/3 of the course)
Differences between OpenACC and the PGI Accelerator model
Using OpenACC across multiple GPUs with OpenMP
Numbers will be limited, so reserve your place as soon as possible by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the workshop.
Dr. Karl A. Wilkinson
