Easy-Peasy GPU Programming using OpenMP
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 — 3:30PM - 4:45PM
This workshop will introduce participants to the OpenMP programming model– one of the most popular and powerful programming models for developing portable HPC applications using hardware accelerators, such as GPUs. The lecture overview will provide an introduction to the GPU hardware, justification for accelerator HPC programming model, and the specifics of OpenMP. In addition to the introductory lecture, attendees will be given access to the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility’s Ascent system for a hands-on tutorial. Ascent is an IBM 16-node POWER9 system, with 2 POWER9 CPUs and 6 GPUs per node.
