OpenMP has become the de-facto standard for multitasks parallel programming on shared memory systems.
OpenACC is an emerging standard for parallel computing designed to ease the use of accelerators like GPU, or coming many-core processors; OpenACC is real-world implementation of parallel programming concepts for accelerators that could be part of a future OpenMP standard.
  • Introduction to OpenMP
  • Presentation of the OpenACC programming model; 
  • hands-on session using CAPS/HMPP compiling toolchain
Hands-on sessions will use the PRACE / CURIE supercomputer
The OpenACC part of the course will be given by CAPS Entreprise.

Learning outcome:
After this course, participants should know the syntax of OpenMP directives, how to apply them to obtain efficient parallel codes. They will also understand the importance of memory layout. Last, they will have a first exposure to the emerging openACC standard.

Good knowledge in C or Fortran programming language, some knowledge about parallel programming.
GPGPU programming knowledge is not required.
