The Center for Advanced Computing systems has announced their agenda for the Directives and Tools for Accelerators Workshop. Also known as the Seismic Programming Shift Workshop, the event takes place Oct. 11-13 at the University of Houston.
ISC 2015 will host a number of sessions on Exascale computing next month in Frankfurt. In what looks to be one of the highlights of the conference, Bill Gropp, Georg Hager, and Paul Kelly will discuss Programming Models on the Road to Exascale. To learn more, we caught up with the Session Chair, Dr Michèle Weiland, who serves as a Project Manager at the EPCC supercomputing center at the University of Edinburgh.
Learn how OpenACC runtimes also exposes performance-related information revealing where your OpenACC applications are wasting clock cycles. The talk will show that profilers can connect with OpenACC applications to record how much time is spent in OpenACC regions and what device activity it turns into.
The 2nd Workshop on Accelerator Programming using Directives has issued its Call for Papers. The WACCPD Workshop takes place Nov. 16 in Austin in conjunction with SC15.
