In another joint effort, ENCCS and CSC will be offering a training workshop on June 15-16 focused on GPU offloading using OpenMP. These new features, which are available since version 4.0, make OpenMP a good option for researchers and developers who wish to accelerate their code on GPUs using a cross-platform framework supported by both Nvidia and AMD GPUs.
The workshop will be hands-on and interactive and lectures will be interleaved with type-along sessions and exercises.
The purpose of the workshop is to learn how GPU offloading works to be able to write simple code using OpenMP directives for GPU offloading.
Previous experience with OpenMP, e.g. for conventional threading on CPUs, is not required. However, participants should be comfortable writing code in C/C++ or Fortran.
