The 2019  OpenACC Annual Meeting is scheduled at the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (RIKEN R-CCS) September 2-5. This four-day meeting will include two keynotes, several OpenACC talks, a GPU Bootcamp, and includes the opportunity to gather OpenACC user feedback that will be used to develop and advance the functionality of the OpenACC programming model.

Keynotes and Talks

Monday, Septmber 2nd, 9:00-16:00, RIKEN R-CSS, Kobe, Japan.

Learn more about the advances in high performance computing (HPC) and science using the OpenACC programming model. Keynote talks presented by RIKEN R-CCS and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with additional talks from Osaka University, Tsukuba University, University of Tokyo, India Institute of Technology Bombay, and more.

Available presentations:

Accelerating plasma simulation codes with portable frameworks: OpenACC and Kokkos, Yuuichi Asahi, Plasma Theory and Simulation Group, National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST)

An optimization of search for neighbour-particle in MPS method for Xeon, Xeon Phi and GPU by using directives, Takaaki Miyajima, RIKEN Center for Computational Science

Current status on OpenACC open source compilers and their evaluation, Sunita Chandrasekaran, University of Delaware, Oscar Hernandez and Seyong Lee, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Modeling continuum PDEs with OpenACC, Shivasubramanian Gopalakrishnan, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai

Acceleration of unstructured low-order finite-element earthquake simulation using OpenACC, Takuma Yamaguchi, University of Tokyo

XcalableACC: Overview and prospects, Hitoshi Murai, RIKEN Center for Computational Science

User Feedback Session

Monday, September 2nd, RIKEN R-CSS, Kobe, Japan.

User feedback is essential to the development and use of the OpenACC programming model. The feedback gathered will be used to prioritize the technical work and activities needed for the next release of OpenACC.

GPU Bootcamp

Tuesday, September 3rd, 8:30-18:00, RIKEN R-CSS, Kobe, Japan.

GPU bootcamp is a free full day event 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. Participation in the GPU Bootcamp is open to all. 

Networking Event

Monday, September 2nd, 17:00-18:30PM, Integrated Research Center of Kobe University, 4th Floor Lounge, 7 Chome-1-48 Minatojima Minami-machi, Chuo Ward, Kobe, Hyogo, Japan.

The OpenACC Social Networking Event provides a great opportunity to mix and mingle with your colleagues and peers. Share your experiences and best practices while having a good time with great company! Food and drinks are complimentary.
