OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. It will have a hands-on component using NCSA's Blue Waters supercomputer

The workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites but is NOT available via a webcast. Telecast sites include:
