Practical course on the CUDA to HIP porting


With the upcoming arrival of the LUMI supercomputer, we start a series of training to enable its future users to exploit its potentiality. In particular, the LUMI-G partition is based on AMD GPUs and therefore we start with a course that will help the users to port their applications to this new architecture with a first course on the porting of CUDA applications to HIP. It will provide an extensive dive into the Hipify tools as well as showcase many examples, and it includes hands-on sessions. During the hands-on session, you will work with applications provided by us as well as with your own application.

This training course is open to all users of the LUMI consortium and we strongly encourage all users who are planning to use LUMI to submit an application. All the selected participants will be provided training accounts on the CSC’s Puhti system with Nvidia GPUs which will be used during the hands-on sessions.
