Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is GPU Bootcamp?
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.
Who Can Attend?
GPU Bootcamps are open to all—you do not have to be registered for the OpenACC.org User Meeting or Conference to participate. Whether you’re a seasoned researcher or novice programmer, we want you to be here. Be prepared to learn, brainstorm, and build amazing real-world skills. Throughout the Bootcamp, we’ll be holding workshops where participants will learn the foundations of GPU programming and how to use various tools for development.
How Much Does it Cost?
GPU Bootcamp is free for all admitted participants. We’ll have WiFi, food, workshops, and awesome swag during the entire time you’ll be with us.
What if I Don't Have a Team?
The hacker ethos is all about teamwork. If you don’t have a teammate, we’ll assign you to a team where you can meet your new best friends. 3-5 people per team is the limit.
What Do I Bring?
An ID card, laptop and charger, and your enthusiasm to learn new skills and meet new people.
