NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Parallelware Tool Workshop, June 6, 2019

June 6, 2019

NERSC will host a one-day training event for users on June 6, 2019 on using the Parallelware Trainer tool to learn to add OpenMP or OpenACC directives to your code.

With the Parallelware Trainer, instead of learning to parallelize simple toy codes, users can try parallelizing their own kernels and codes with guidance. After a short tutorial by Manuel Arenaz, the founder of Appentra, attendees will apply what they have learned to their own codes, with guidance from the instructor and NERSC staff.
