NVIDIA DLI Course: Fundamentals of Accelerated Computing with OpenACC
|Thursday, March 14, 2019, 9:00-17:00|
LRZ Building, University campus Garching, near Munich, Lecture Hall (Hörsaal) H.E.009 and Seminarraum 1 H.E.008
OverviewIn this workshop you learn the basics of OpenACC, a high-level programming language for programming on GPUs. Discover how to accelerate the performance of your applications beyond the limits of CPU-only programming with simple pragmas. You’ll learn:
Upon completion, you'll be ready to use OpenACC to GPU accelerate CPU-only applications.
The lectures are interleaved with many hands-on sessions using Jupyter Notebooks. The exercises will be done on a fully configured GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud.
The workshop is co-organized by LRZ and NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI). NVIDIA DLI offers hands-on training for developers, data scientists, and researchers looking to solve challenging problems with deep learning.
All instructors are NVIDIA certified University Ambassadors.
The workshop is free of charge for all academic participants and coffee breaks will be provided (lunch is not included). Please note, that the workshop is exclusively for verifiable students, staff, and researchers from any academic institution (for industrial participants, please contact NVIDIA for industrial specific training). On the first day of the workshop, please bring your student/academia id.
NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute
The NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute delivers hands-on training for developers, data scientists, and engineers. The program is designed to help you get started with training, optimizing, and deploying neural networks to solve real-world problems across diverse industries such as self-driving cars, healthcare, online services, and robotics.
|Prerequisites||Technical background, basic C/C++ or Fortran programming skills. In addition, basics in Python will be helpful. Since Python 2.7 is used, the following tutorial can be used to learn the syntax: docs.python.org/2.7/tutorial/index.html.|
