Cray Technical Workshop on XK6 Programming

[tab: Overview]

On October 9-10, 2012, ORNL and Cray will be hosting a two day XK6 programming workshop. The intent is to bring together users of XK6 systems around the world and share experiences. We would very much like your participation in this workshop. In addition to user talks we will have expert panels covering programming models for the XK6 including OpenACC, Cuda, OpenCL, Cuda Fortran, etc.

Attendance will be limited to 75 people, so please sign up early. The workshop will be held in the JICS auditorium on the ORNL campus and foreign nationals will need to submit visitor requests six weeks prior to the event. Please consider attending and if you know of others who would be interested in either attending or speaking, please forward this email.

Registration is required for this event. Information about travel and accommodations in the Oak Ridge area are provided below.

Refreshments (not lunch) will be provided during the event.

Additionally, the event will be webcast. Please indicate if you intend to participate in person or via webcast on the registration form.
