GPU Programming for Scientific Computing and Beyond
Optimise GPU programming to accelerate scientific computing and other operations
Accelerators such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and co-processors are very effective at achieving high-performance computing (HPC) to optimise a device’s power. Typical GPU architecture means the units often perform several operations in parallel, breaking down large problems into smaller and simpler ones that can be executed at the same time.
To get the most from these resources, end-users and scientific developers need to use the parallel programming of a graphics processing unit at maximum efficiency. On this five-week course from the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) you’ll learn to do that.
Achieve accelerated parallel programming
Faster parallel programming means better performance and quicker scientific computing and other HPC results, making it a top priority. On this course, you’ll learn how to accelerate parallel programming using a GPU.
With this enhanced computational power, you’ll be able to run scientific and engineering simulations for scientific computing, solve matrices and vectors for artificial intelligence, or optimally run end-user applications like games.
Get all you need to kick-start your GPGPU programming
The course covers all aspects of general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) programming. You’ll get comprehensive instruction on GPU architecture, programming languages, code optimisation and tuning, and everything else required for any kind of HPC.
Learn GPGPU programming with a world-class team
PRACE is dedicated to enabling high-impact scientific and engineering discovery and research, and to strengthening HPC usage across Europe. This mission, along with the Partnership’s combined expertise, makes it ideally suited to helping you take your GPGPU programming game further.
