Please note that attendance at this workshop session is limited to University of Michigan students, faculty, and staff only. This is due to restricted building access. We apologize for any inconvenience.
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 the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
You will need to bring a laptop to the workshop. There are no computers provided in the conference room.
You will need an ssh client to connect to a remote cluster in order to participate in the course exercises. Mac OS X and Linux platforms have this built-in. Here are a couple of choices for Windows platforms:
- Download and install U-M PuTTY/WinSCP from the Compute at the U website. This includes both the PuTTY ssh client and terminal emulator and a graphical file transfer tool in one installer.
- Download and install PuTTY directly from the developer.
Please download and install these tools before class begins.

These directions are a bit more tortuous than you might expect. It’s a good idea to review them before making the journey.
Please do not bring food or drink into the conference room. There is a very strict no food or drinks policy. The only thing that is allowed is water in a closed container, like a water bottle.
Restrooms are outside the conference room, down the hall on the right.
