RIS Academy: Open ACC, a pragmatic way for easy GPU acceleration

Wanneer:wo 28-06-2017
Waar:Room 153, Smitsborg, Nettelbosje , Groningen
RIS Academy: workshop OpenACC
RIS Academy: workshop OpenACC

In this workshop you will learn how to use OpenACC to accelerate your code on GPUs.

In recent years the use of graphics processing units (GPU) for accelerating software has increased. In order to exploit the capabilities of GPUs a very high level of parallelism is needed.

Using OpenACC directives in C/C++ or Fortran is an easy way of getting access to the computational power of GPU.

For this workshop we will use course material provided by Nvidia.
