Loop Optimizations with OpenACC


Loop Optimizations with OpenACC
Tuesday, June 23, 2020

On-site participation will be held at the following sites:

ORNL Building 5100, Room 128 (JICS Auditorium) 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM (ET)
NERSC Building 59 (Shyh Wang Hall), Room 4102 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (PT)

NVIDIA will present “Loop Optimizations with OpenACC” on Tuesday, June 23, 2020. This event is part 3 of a 3-part OpenACC Training Series that NVIDIA will deliver in 2020.

OpenACC is a user-driven directive-based performance-portable parallel programming model designed for scientists and engineers who are interested in porting their codes to a wide variety of heterogeneous HPC hardware platforms and architectures.

There are a number of ways we can optimize our code using OpenACC. This module introduces the ‘gang’, ‘worker’, and ‘vector’ constructs in OpenACC, as well as other OpenACC loop optimization clauses that can be used to communicate with the compiler with respect to how you would like your application to be parallelized. In this module, we experiment with multiple loop optimization strategies, and we show the performance impact of each using Summit. After the presentation, there will be a hands-on session where participants can complete example exercises meant to reinforce the presented concepts.


In-Person Participation
OLCF and NERSC will both hold in-person events for each part of the series, where participants can watch the presentations and get help from experts during the hands-on sessions. In-person participants without current Summit or Cori-GPU access will be given temporary accounts to work on the examples.

The deadline for in-person registration is June 9, 2020.


Remote Participation
Remote participants can watch the presentations via web broadcast and will have access to the training exercises, but temporary access to the compute systems will be limited as follows:

  • Current NERSC users will have Cori-GPU access temporarily added to their accounts.
  • Temporary Summit access will not be available for remote participants.

NOTE: Registration is required for both in-person and remote participation. To register, please submit the form below.

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Papatheodore (papatheodore@ornl.gov).
