ACCESS HPC Workshop (2022/11/07): GPU Programming Using OpenACC

More thanks to @babreu for sharing this excellent learning opportunity. Note the registration requirements and that the event is in person at NCSA.


The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present an OpenACC GPU programming workshop, sponsored by ACCESS.

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-2 computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

This will be an IN PERSON event hosted by various satellite sites, there WILL NOT be a direct to desktop option for this event.


Interested applicants must first have an ACCESS ID. If you do not have an ACCESS ID, please visit this page to create one:

Eventbrite Reservation

Classroom location and further details will be provided once your registration has been processed.


@cyberinfrastructure Has anyone registered for this? This seems like valuable opportunity to train MUSES developers in the potential use of GPUs for their modules.

OpenACC is an annotation language. Mostly geared towards array operations. Might be interesting to attend, though not all compiler vendors support it.
