The Portuguese EuroCC National Center of Competence, in collaboration with NVIDIA and, is hosting a GPU programming Bootcamp aimed primarily at the community of Portuguese researchers and students who use GPUs as the main tool for their HPC workloads.

During this two-day online Bootcamp, participants will learn about multiple GPU programming models and can choose the one that best fits their needs to run their scientific codes on GPUs. This Bootcamp will cover an introduction to GPU programming using OpenACC, OpenMP, stdpar and CUDA C, and provides hands-on opportunities to learn how to analyse GPU-enabled applications using NVIDIA® Nsight™ Systems. This online Bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where you will be guided through step-by-step instructions with teaching assistants on hand to help throughout.
