XSEDE HPC Monthly Workshop - Tue. March 05, 2019 - OpenACC 

Research Technology (RT) is participating in the eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) spring series of workshops on topics in High Performance Computing. The season continues with OpenACC, the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of CPU and 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. There will be a hands-on component using the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
