Mini GPU Hackathon

The last day to register for this event will be October 17th.

The OLCF invites you to participate in a 3-day GPU mini-hackathon led by experts from the OLCF and NVIDIA.  The mini-hackathon will be a mixture of lecture and hands-on training for programming for GPUs on Titan and beyond.  It will be held at the Knoxville Crowne Plaza hotel on November 1-3 and is also open to people outside of ORNL.  Brent Leback from NVIDIA/PGI will introduce programming techniques using OpenACC and will include topics such as optimization and profiling methods for GPU programming. We encourage attendees to bring their own applications to work on during the latter part of the event.

The final agenda for the mini-hackathon will be posted shortly.

Background

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.  This event will introduce you to GPU programming techniques.

 Target audience and format

This activity is open to current and perspective users of the OLCF.  The mini-hackathon will be a mixture of lecture and hands-on training for programming for GPUs on Titan and beyond.  Prior GPU experience is not required.

Cost

All of our training events are free to attend. We cannot offer travel support.
