This workshop targets researchers and developers who already know the basics of OpenACC and/or CUDA but would like to expand their knowledge. It will build on the ENCCS workshop “Introduction to OpenACC/CUDA” given in May (https://enccs.se/events/2021/05/openacccuda-training-for-beginners/).
In recent years, Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) and Transformers have led to numerous breakthrough achievements in a variety of fields such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), chemistry, and physics. By doing away with the need for fixed-size inputs, these architectures significantly extend the scope of problems in which deep learning can be applied.
GPU hackathons offer a unique opportunity for domain scientists and research software engineers to accelerate and optimize their applications on GPUs. Teams of researchers are paired with experienced GPU mentors to learn and apply the accelerated and parallel computing skills needed by the scientific community. Both current or prospective users of large hybrid CPU/GPU HPC clusters who develop applications that could benefit from GPU acceleration are encouraged to participate!
