GPU Series: Co-Design Process Training for Scientists and Project Leads

Sep. 8, 2022

10:00 – 11:00 am MDT


The final session in a series of workshops and tutorials on GPU computing – “Co-Design Process Training for Scientists and Project Leads” – will be on Thursday, September 8, at 10 a.m. MDT. The series of one-hour sessions is for scientists, software engineers, and students in the Earth system sciences to help them prepare to use the extensive GPU-computing capabilities of the new Derecho system. The training is intended for both new and more experienced GPU programmers and requires familiarity with the UNIX shell; Fortran, C/C++, and/or Python; and typical program compilation workflows.

The abstract for this session follows:

  • Porting a large codebase to GPUs can be intimidating. This session will cover basic questions scientists and project leads can ask to help evaluate whether their science objectives and applications are suitable for acceleration GPU. We will also discuss co-design strategies – ways to help scientists and engineers work together and maintain code stability while achieving science goals. Participants are encouraged to review sessions 2 & 3 from the tutorial series.

As with other sessions in the series, this one will include dedicated Q&A time and some will involve interactive coding with participants. This session will involve some interactive participation so make sure you are able to access the Casper compute system prior to the event. Recent registrants will be provided log in details prior to the session.

Please use this form to register if you plan to attend and have not already registered for the series. You only need to register once, and can then use the same credentials to attend subsequent sessions on the Zoom meeting platform. By registering and attending, you agree to abide by the UCAR Code of Conduct. These training sessions will be recorded and published publicly for future reference.
