XSEDE HPC Monthly Workshop - Thu. Mar. 30, 2017 - GPU Computing Using OpenACC


Location: Tufts University

Address: Collaborative Learning and Innovation Complex 574 Boston Ave Medford, MA 02155


Another Map:

Collaborative Learning and Innovation Complex (CLIC)

Parking: Guest parking is available adjacent to CLIC however you might also consider Dowling Parking Garage,, which is a short walk away.

Public Transportation: Take the Red Line to Davis Sq. and the Jumbo Shuttle to campus center, a short walk from CLIC.

Questions, comments, concerns:

Description: 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 the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
