ENCCS is offering a training workshop on November 18-19 focused on GPU offloading using OpenMP. These new features, which are available since version 4.0, make OpenMP a good option for researchers and developers who wish to accelerate their code on GPUs using a cross-platform framework supported by all HPC device vendors (including NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel)

The workshop will be hands-on and interactive and lectures will be interleaved with type-along sessions and exercises. CSC Finland has contributed to the training material


Previous experience with OpenMP, e.g. for conventional threading on CPUs, is not required. However, participants should be comfortable writing code in C/C++ or Fortran.

What you will learn

The purpose of the workshop is to learn how GPU offloading works to be able to write simple code using OpenMP directives for GPU offloading. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Introduction of heat equation miniapp
  • GPU Architecture
  • OpenMP Offloading directives
  • Transferring data between CPU and GPU
