OpenACC BOF at SC21

OpenACC is presenting a Birds-of-a-Feather at SC21! Learn more about the OpenACC organization, new features for the specifications, real-world use cases and compiler implementations. 

OpenACC Annual Summit 2021

Expanding from the annual meeting, the OpenACC Summit brings together users of the OpenACC programming model, members of the OpenACC organization, and the scientific computing community across national laboratories, research institutions and industry.

Held September 14-15, 2021, this year's Summit was completely online and featured a keynote, Birds-of-a-Feather interactive discussion, invited talks and a Connect with Experts session. 


NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference (GTC) is the premier digital conference to discover the advanced technologies that are transforming today's industries. View GTC On-Demand for technical talks, interactive panels and hands-on training covering a myriad of topics at the intersection of HPC, AI and Data Science. Learn more.


Hackathons are five day intensive hands-on mentoring sessions. They are designed to help computational scientists port their applications to GPUs using libraries, OpenACC, CUDA and other tools. They are currently lead by the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and OpenACC Organization. Full schedule and registration details

GPU Bootcamps

GPU bootcamps are free, one- or two-day events designed to teach scientists and researchers how to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs. Participants will be introduced to available libraries, programming models, and platforms and will learn the basics of GPU programming through extensive hands-on collaboration based on real-life codes using the OpenACC programming model. GPU Bootcamp is organized collaboratively by OpenACC.orgNVIDIA, and OLCF.


Workshops help students learn how to start with OpenACC. These events can run for a few hours, a day or several days and include hands-on exercises. Workshops are a great preparation for hackathons.

Online Courses

Similar to workshops, online courses allow students to participate remotely through webinar platforms. Just as with in-person workshops, online courses offer lectures, hands-on exercises and Q&A sessions. Most of the online courses are recorded and available for review at

User Group Meetings

The OpenACC User Group meets a few times a year during key HPC events to discuss training, provide feedback on the specification, collaborate on OpenACC-related research and activities, share experiences and best practices and have a good time with great company!
