This is an expansion of the topic "OpenACC and other approaches to GPU computing" covered on this year's and last year's editions of the Introduction to CUDA Programming.
This course will provide very good introduction to the PUMPS Summer School run jointly with NVIDIA - also at Campus Nord, Barcelona. For further information visit the school website.
Convener: Antonio Peña, Computer Sciences Senior Researcher, Accelerators and Communications for High Performance Computing, BSC
As an NVIDIA GPU Center of Excellence, BSC and UPC are deeply involved in research and outreach activities around GPU Computing. OpenACC is a high-level, directive-based programming model for GPU computing. It is a very convenient language to leverage the GPU power with minimal code modifications, being the preferred option for non computer scientists. This course will cover the necessary topics to get started with GPU programming in OpenACC, as well as some advanced topics.
The target audiences of the course are students who want to develop exciting applications for these processors, as well as those who want to develop programming tools and future implementations for these processors.
BEGINNERS: for trainees from different background or very little knowledge.
