Pawsey Advanced HIP Workshop – June 2024 Conduct

11 June - 12 June 2024
9:00am - 2:30pm

🌟Embark on the next phase of your HIP journey with our advanced course!🌟

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

As an extension to the beginner’s course, this 2-day workshop will focus on advanced topics with the aim of maximising your benefit from using HIP in a multi-GPU environment.


11-12 June 2024 (9:00 am – 2.30 pm AWST)

  • How to use HIP applications on Setonix.
  • Access memory spaces from the host and the kernel. 
  • Strategies to get the best performance from your kernels.                                                                                                                                                                                           
  • Optimise application performance with basic HIP course asynchronous IO.
  • Tips and techniques for porting applications from CUDA to HIP.

Join us for an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on 13 June 2024 from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon AWST to get your HIP/Advanced HIP questions answered by our experts!   – Register here
