Description

Homepage

General-purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) potentially offer exceptionally high memory bandwidth and performance for a wide range of applications. The challenge in utilizing such accelerators has been the difficulty in programming them. Any and all GPU programming paradigms are welcome.

The goal of this 5-day Hackathon is for current or prospective user groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems to send teams of at least 3 developers along with either a potentially scalable application that could benefit from GPU accelerators, or an application running on accelerators that need optimization.

There will be intensive mentoring during this 5-day hands-on training, with the goal that the teams leave with applications running on GPUs, or at least with a clear roadmap of how to get there. Our mentors come from national laboratories, universities and vendors, and besides having extensive experience in programming GPUs, many of them develop the GPU-capable compilers and help define standards such as OpenACC and OpenMP.


Event ID: EXE-D-GPUHK092018
This event falls under Exemption D (Formal classroom training held at Federal facilities, which does not exhibit indicia of a formal conference as outlined in the Conference/Event Exemption Request Form.) Participation is contingent on application acceptance.
