When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

S09: OpenCL: A Hands-on introduction

SESSION: S09: OpenCL: A Hands-on introduction

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Tim Mattson, Benedict Gaster, Simon McIntosh-Smith


OpenCL is an open standard for programming heterogeneous computers composed of CPUs, GPUs and other processors. OpenCL consists of a framework to define the platform as a host (typically a CPU) and one or more compute devices (e.g. a GPU) plus a C-based programming language for writing programs for the compute devices. Using OpenCL, a programmer can write parallel programs that use all the resources of the heterogeneous computer. In this hands-on tutorial, we will introduce OpenCL. The format will be a 50/50 split between lectures and exercises. Students will use their own laptops (Windows, Linux or OS/X) ideally with OpenCL already loaded (see for information about available OpenCL compilers). We will also provide online systems that can run OpenCL. Students should load putty or some other terminal client prior to the tutorial in order to use these online systems.
