GPU-accelerated Computing

Adam Simpson, Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

This hands-on session will provide a brief introduction to GPU programming and will provide access to Titan, the second-fastest supercomputer in the world (November 2015 TOP500 list). The workshop will cover the basics of OpenACC programming and will include practical examples to take advantage of Titan's GPUs. Attendees also will have the opportunity to accelerate a small application using OpenACC and to learn about different optimizations.
