5-6 March 2014
Maison de la Simulation
CET timezone
Subjects covered:
Threading, accelerators


Course Description:
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.
Content:
  • presentation of the OpenACC programming model
  • hands-on session using CAPS/HMPP compiling toolchain
Hands-on sessions will use a local cluster at Maison de la Simulation. The OpenACC part of the course will be given by CAPS Entreprise.

Learning outcome: 
After this courses, participants should know the syntax of OpenACC directives, how to apply them to obtain efficient parallel codes. They will also understand the importance of memory layout.

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