GPU Applications and Programming for HPC | University of Melbourne | Friday, 23. August 2019

Your trainer for this workshop is Lev Lafayette from Research Platform Services.
This workshop is being held on Friday the 23rd August from 9:30am-2:30pm.
About this Event:
General-purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) have provided a new opportunities for a subset of parallel computation, especially related to "deep learning". This course provides an overview of GPU architecture, where it is useful (and not useful) and the implementation on the Spartan HPC system, including how to submit GPGPUs jobs with Slurm for a variety of applications. In addition an introduction to GPGPU programming is provided initially by using the simpler OpenACC pragma system, before moving to the CUDA API using kernels, threads, blocks, and grids, and extensions to the C/C++ programming languages. The course assumes some familiarity with programming.Please bring your laptop.
