WACCPD: First Workshop on Accelerator Programming using Directives

SESSION: WACCPD: First Workshop on Accelerator Programming using Directives

EVENT TYPE: Workshops

TIME: 9:00AM - 5:30PM

Organizer(s):Sunita Chandrasekaran, Oscar Hernandez, Fernanda Foertter



The nodes of many current HPC platforms are equipped with hardware accelerators that offer high performance with power benefits. In order to enable their use in scientific application codes without undue loss of programmer productivity, several recent efforts have been devoted to providing directive-based programming interfaces. These APIs promise application portability and a means to avoid low-level accelerator-specific programming. Many application developers prefer incremental ways to port codes to accelerator using directives without adding more complexity to their code. This workshop explores the use of these directive sets their implementations and experiences with their deployment in HPC applications. The workshop aims at bringing together the user and tools community to share their knowledge and experiences of using directives to program accelerators. http://openacc.org/waccpd14
