Pawsey: HIP Workshop
9:00am - 2:30pm
Join us to build essential skills in developing HIP applications. The focus is on supercomputing generally AND specifically with Setonix.
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.
5th and 6th September 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
7th September 2023
- 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++ (for HPC, including HIP and OpenCL)‘
About your trainer: Toby Potter
Dr. Toby Potter is a computational physicist and proprietor of Pelagos Consulting and Education.
He has a keen interest in using computers to solve problems and showing others how to do the same. Toby was a Pawsey (then iVEC) intern in 2007 and went on to complete a doctorate in computational Astrophysics at UWA and a postdoc in computational geophysics at the Centre for Energy Geoscience (UWA).
Toby has experience in CUDA, HIP and OpenCL parallel processing frameworks and is the author of the workshop material.
At Pelagos Toby uses his background to translate mathematical ideas into software and makes challenging concepts easier for clients in industry, government, and academia.
