Course: the Effective Use of the Kebnekaise Accelerators

Course: the Effective Use of the Kebnekaise Accelerators

We start out with a short introduction to the Kebnekaise system and accelerators, then look at a number of examples of how to use the Kebnekaise accelerators. We will focus on GPU-enabled applications, OpenMP, and OpenACC.


THIS IS AN OLD COURSE AND EXAMPLE JOB SCRIPTS ARE NO LONGER VALID. THUS, THE MATERIAL IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD!
