Welcome to this ENCCS workshop, in collaboration with CSC Finland and Izum, Slovenia.

SYCL is a C++ abstraction layer for programming heterogeneous hardware with a single-source approach. SYCL is high-level, cross-platform, and extends standard ISO C++17. You will learn to:

  • Use the hipSYCL compiler to generate executable for multiple hardware targets.
  • Write hardware-agnostic code to express parallelism using the queue, command group, and kernel abstractions.
  • Use buffer and accessors to handle memory across devices.
  • Evaluate drawbacks and advantages of unified shared memory.

The training will run on the EuroHPC JU Vega system. For VEGA specs and other details, visit
