Pawsey HIP Workshop – May 2024 Conduct

28 May - 29 May 2024
9:00am - 2:30pm

📢 Discover the versatility of the Heterogeneous Interface for Portability (HIP) framework 📢

Join our comprehensive 2-day workshop on developing HIP applications, tailored for both general supercomputing and specifically for Setonix. The HIP framework provides a programming framework for harnessing the compute capabilities of multicore processors such as the MI250X GPUs.


28th and 29th May (9.0 0am -2.30 pm AWST):

  • Introduction to HIP and high-level features
  • How to build and run applications 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
  • Programming challenge – choose your own adventure in programming with HIP, OR bring your own code and receive feedback and assistance!

Suggested pre-requisite‘Survival C/C++ Refresher’

UPCOMING: Advanced HIP Course: 11-13 June 2024

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

Elevate your skill set and seize the opportunity to master the realm of HIP application development. Reserve your spot today!
