OpenACC is gaining momentum and adoption,” said Duncan Poole, President of the OpenACC Standards Group. “Developers benefit because using OpenACC directives makes parallel programming more productive and collaboration easier. Large, legacy codes are easier to maintain and accelerated code is more portable across HPC systems.”
GTC sessions cover a wide range of topics, including newly parallelized applications, programming techniques and new OpenACC features. Suggested sessions and events include:
- Panel on Compiler Directives for Accelerated Computing
- Parallelization and Performance of the next NIM Weather Model on Titan
- Delivering Performance in Scientific Simulations: Present and Future Role of GPUs in Supercomputing
- Cross-Platform Performance Portability using OpenACC
