OpenCL: A Hands-On Introduction

SESSION: OpenCL: A Hands-On Introduction

EVENT TYPE: Tutorials

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM



OpenCL is an open standard for programming heterogeneous parallel computers composed of CPUs, GPUs and other processors. OpenCL consists of a framework to manipulate the host CPU and one or more compute devices plus a C-based programming language for writing programs for the compute devices. Using OpenCL, a programmer can write parallel programs that harness all of the resources of a heterogeneous computer.

In this hands-on tutorial, we introduce OpenCL using the more accessible C++ API. The tutorial format will be a 50/50 split between lectures and exercises. Students will use their own laptops (Windows, Linux or OS/X) and log into a remote server running an OpenCL platform. Alternatively, students can load OpenCL onto their own laptops prior to the course (Intel, AMD and NVIDIA provide OpenCL SDKs. Apple laptops with X-code include OpenCL by default. Be sure to configure X-code to use the command line interface).

The last segment of the tutorial will be spent visiting the “OpenCL zoo”; a diverse collection of OpenCL conformant devices. Tutorial attendees will run their own programs on devices in the zoo to explore performance portability of OpenCL. The zoo should include a mix of CPU, GPU, FPGA, mobile, and DSP devices.
