NCSA hosts OpenACC programming workshop

NCSA and the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project that it leads, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, will present an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on April 1.

OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. It will have a hands-on component using NCSA’s Blue Waters supercomputer.

This workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites:

  • Clemson University
  • Georgia State University
  • Harvey Mudd University
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications (Room 1030)
  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • Purdue University
  • Stanford University
  • University of Houston Clear-Lake
  • University of Iowa
  • University of Michigan
  • West Virginia University

Please register for the site that you wish to attend at

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast. Please note that the hands-on accounts will be limited to 150 students, available across all sites and awarded by order of registration.
