N-Ways To GPU Programming Bootcamp

GPU Programming Bootcamp
14 - 15 Mar - Mar

During this two-day online Bootcamp, participants will learn about multiple GPU programming models and can choose the one that best fits their needs to run their scientific codes on GPUs. This Bootcamp will cover an introduction to GPU programming using OpenACC, OpenMP, stdpar and CUDA C, and provides hands-on opportunities to learn how to analyse GPU-enabled applications using NVIDIA® Nsight™ Systems. This online Bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where you will be guided through step-by-step instructions with teaching assistants on hand to help throughout.

The Bootcamp is co-organised by and NVIDIA for EuroCC@GCS, the German National Competence Centre for High-Performance Computing.

This 2-day Bootcamp will be hosted online in the Central European Time (CET) zone. All communication will be done through Zoom, Slack and email.
