Directives and Tools for Accelerators: A Seismic Programming Shift
October 20th, 2014
Alumni Center,
University of Houston,
4800 Calhoun Rd, Houston, TX 77004

High-level, directive-based programming models have been rapidly gaining
traction as a portable, productive means to develop application code for
multicore platforms and accelerators. Due to their usability and
portability, programming APIs such as OpenMP and OpenACC are increasingly
being adopted as an alternative to lower-level APIs such as CUDA and
OpenCL. This workshop will provide a forum for HPC application developers
and technical managers to learn more about these high-level,
directive-based programming strategies and their usage to program
accelerators, such as NVIDIA/AMD GPUs, and coprocessors such as Intel’s
Xeon Phi.

The speakers in this workshop will discuss directive-based standards for
accelerator programming and how they can benefit HPC application

A panel session moderated by Duncan Poole, President of the OpenACC
Standards Group, will give attendees an opportunity to provide their
feedback and give input on requirements to members of the programming
standards committee in order to help them make improvements to the
specification and implementation.

The workshop will conclude with a networking session for exchanging ideas
and experiences.

Registration is FREE. <http://www.cacds.uh.edu/?q=Registration_ONGWorkshop>
Please register by October 10th, 2014, AOE. Attendance is limited.

There will be a welcome reception on October 19th, 2014. The workshop will
take place as a full day event on October 20th, 2014.

This workshop is organized by the HPC Tools group,
<http://web.cs.uh.edu/%7Ehpctools/> Dept. of Computer Science, UH, in
collaboration with CACDS <http://www.cacds.uh.edu/> and the OpenACC
Standards Group <http://www.openacc-standard.org/>
