HIP Workshop

16 May - 19 May 2023
9:00am - 2:00pm

The Heterogeneous Interface for Portability (HIP) provides a programming framework for harnessing the compute capabilities of multicore processors such as the MI250X GPU’s on Setonix.

In this course we focus on the essentials of developing HIP applications with a focus on supercomputing.


 16-18 May 2023

  • Introduction to HIP and high level features
  • How to build and run applications on Setonix with HIP and MPI
  • A complete line-by-line walkthrough of a HIP-enabled application
  • Tools and techniques for debugging and measuring the performance of HIP applications

19 May 2023

  • Programming challenge – choose your own adventure in programming with HIP!

– or –

  • Bring your own code and receive feedback and assistance

TO BE SCHEDULED: Advanced HIP Course: August / September 2023

  • A subsequent advanced course will incorporate topics like advanced memory management,  kernel and IO optimisation, and porting HIP applications from CUDA.
