The final participants will be selected and informed after the registration deadline has passed.


During this two-day online bootcamp, participants will learn about multiple GPU programming models and can choose the one that best fits their needs to run their scientific codes on GPUs. This bootcamp will cover an introduction to GPU programming using OpenACC, OpenMP, stdpar, and CUDA C, and provides hands-on opportunities to learn how to analyze GPU-enabled applications using NVIDIA® Nsight™ Systems. This online bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where you will be guided through step-by-step instructions with teaching assistants on hand to help throughout.  

This bootcamp is co-organised by the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS)Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC)Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ)Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC)OpenACC organization, and NVIDIA for EuroCC Austria and EuroCC@GCS, the Austrian and German National Competence Centres for High-Performance Computing.

Event Format

This 2-day bootcamp will be hosted online in the Central European Summer Time (CEST) zone. All communication will be done through Zoom, Slack, and email. 


  • Basic experience with C/C++ or Fortran.
