Event details

Event from the Computational Modelling Group

Dave Norton from the Portland Group International (PGI) will be running a one day introductory workshop on the CUDA Fortran and OpenACC models for developing GPU accelerated code. Two models that provide a straightforward solution for porting code to GPUs.

CUDA Fortran is the Fortran counterpart to CUDA C whilst OpenACC uses a pragma based approach. Acceleration of scientific codes using these models has been reported to result in acceleration of up to a factor of 120x in exceptional cases. Examples can be found on the PGI newsletter:

This will be a hands on workshop utilizing the GPU accelerated nodes on Iridis3. Whilst the details of the course are not yet confirmed the following material will be covered:

  • Programming with CUDA Fortran
  • Programming with OpenACC (Approximately 2/3 of the course)
  • Differences between OpenACC and the PGI Accelerator model
  • Using OpenACC across multiple GPUs with OpenMP

 Numbers will be limited, so reserve your place as soon as possible by contacting Karl Wilkinson.

An event from our Computational Modelling Group

Bringing together Southampton university researchers using applied Computational Modelling to support the understanding and advancement of physical and natural sciences, engineering, medicine, economy, society, psychology.
