LUMI Training - Practical course on the CUDA to HIP porting

CSC and the LUMI User Support Team organize their first training day that will focus on porting CUDA applications to HIP. This training aims to help the users to port their code to LUMI, the European pre-exascale supercomputer, that will achieve its high computing power thanks to a large number of nodes with AMD GPUs. This event will take place on February 26.

This session will provide an extensive dive into the Hipify tools, many examples and a hands-on session. If you’re developing your code with CUDA and wish to harness the computing power of LUMI in the future this training is a fantastic opportunity.
