The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. It integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.

GPU Programming Using OpenACC


XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center announced a one day GPU Programming workshop. OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop will have a hands-on component using the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. The event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform. All undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff are all welcome to attend the workshop. As a XSEDE Campus Champion, we are hosting the event at UTEP as a remote site for the workshop.
