Today the Open Fabrics Alliance announced that their upcoming International OFS Developers’ Workshop will center around three major themes: Applications Performance, Non-Volatile Memory, and Systems-on-a-Chip (SoCs).
“Geoscientists need tools to allow them to rapidly develop algorithms that run fast on accelerators, while at the same time deliver portability and improve productivity. They demand a single source code, with no need to maintain multiple code paths, using a high-level approach that presents a low learning curve. OpenACC provides directives-based approaches to rapidly accelerating applications for GPUs and other parallel architectures. This talk will serve as an introduction to programming with OpenACC 2.0.”
