Objectives

This is an expansion of the topic "OpenACC and other approaches to GPU computing" covered on this year's and last year's editions of the Introduction to CUDA Programming.  This course is delivered by the GPU Center of Excellence (GCOE) awarded by NVIDIA to the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in association with Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC). It will provide very good introduction to the PUMPS Summer School run jointly with NVIDIA - 26 - 30 June also  at Campus Nord, Barcelona. For further information visit the school website. You may be also interested in our new course: Basic Programming Multicore and many-core processors image and video processing.

As an NVIDIA GPU Center of Excellence, BSC and UPC are deeply involved in research and outreach activities around GPU Computing. OpenACC is a high-level, directive-based programming model for GPU computing. It is a very convenient language to leverage the GPU power with minimal code modifications, being the preferred option for non computer scientists. This course will cover the necessary topics to get started with GPU programming in OpenACC, as well as some advanced topics.
